How to force console mode @ boot
I installed Fedora8 in a virtual machine using VirtualPC on MacOSX tiger.
I know, Virtual Box and Parallels is better, but they don't run on the PPC platform.
I'm not familiar with Fedora at all.
After the install finished, and it came time for 1st boot, Grub boots the OS fine but it tries to boot directly into X and gives me a garbled screen.
That's as far as it goes.
I'm used to Slackware, which boots in console mode and then you run X manually.
Which is what I want Fedora to do so I can go in and configure X manually.
However, the command line that's invoked by hitting 'c' on the Grub boot screen isn't actually a shell prompt.
So very few commands can be used.
What I would like to know is how to force Fedora to boot into a shell prompt with no GUI.
