    i was able to track down a monitor to use until i can get a replacement. its a beat to hell 15" CTX. when i start it up it works fine until it gets to the log on screen then it displays several blurred images. how can i get into a text screen to change the settings for this thing.

    ctrl + alt + f1 should take you to a text console. You could also tell the kernek to boot into init 3 from your boot loader.

    Sounds like a resolution problem to me. Try changing your resolution by pressing CTRL+ALT+(NumPad +).

    I'm not sure if you want to know this in that case, but actually Linux kernel fatal errors are known as "kernel oopses", the kernel itself says oops, and the programs used to handle them are oops-related (like ksymoops).
