    Smoothwall 0.98 text interface screen


    I have Smoothwall 0.98 installed on a redundant HP Vectra XA P1 PC with 96MB RAM.
    It starts up fine but is always in text-login interface, ie. black console screen only.
    Can anyone please tell me how to change it to GUI interface ?
    Thank you.

    I can get into /etc directory and can see the file inittab.
    How do I amend this file to set its dafault init level to 5 ?
    Sorry - I am new in Linux.

    Use a texeditor to edit the file, for example vi,pico,emacs.
