    Thanks icedtea

    I searched with whereis for xorgconfig but it cannot locate the file.
    Does that mean that i have to install it from somewhere first?
    and would you be kind to tell me how do i boot my system to runlevel 3.

    Many thanks

    hmmm wats ur distro? are u also using LILO? ( if u r using windows and linux OS) i switched run level 3 with LILO.. NOW if u dont have LILO ( meaning u are running only 1 OS) hmm i think u should change first ur inittab - AND THAT , M NOT FAMILIAR.. m just like you.. ask the guys who replied to my posts above.. they are certified expert regarding LINUX.. they will be a great help.. to YOU,, ( and ME of course )

    if ur box starts with the X - meaning u r running level 4 (for X sessions)

    check this:

    Runlevel 0 = System Halt
    Runlevel 1 = Single user mode, mostly used for maintenance
    Runlevel 2 = Unused
    Runlevel 3 = Multiuser with console login
    Runlevel 4 = Multiuser with an X11 session manager (XDM, GDM, KDM)
    Runlevel 5 = Unused
    Runlevel 6 = Reboot

    x-cess :

    hmm can u paste the results of ur whereis in xorgconfig? - m sori but i cnt help u much bout runlevels

    yeh i think i can only use runlevel 3 at the moment because i am trying to configure my x but unsucssessful yet.

    when i type #whereis xorgconfig i get in the next line

    and i think that mean it couldn't find it
