> Linux > Red Hat - some "how-to" questions
Cas 05 Feb 2005, 04:17
Some time ago I posted the classic message here about which Linux I should choose. I've finally got my new PC and I started trying what I had in hand. I remember you guys mostly recommended Slackware to me and I can see today that another guy asked the same and got the same answer, so I'm even more encouraged to get it.
Anyway, so far I've only been able to try two Linux distros: Ubuntu and Red Hat 8. They look very similar, but Ubuntu does not detect my AWE64 and for some reason shows many error messages at the beginning. I've installed Red Hat in GUI mode the first time and now I've been trying the text mode, but...
- How do I get to the GUI from text mode and back? I don't want to have to reinstall Linux everytime I want to switch modes.
- For some reason, my new PC is not accepting my internal US Robotics ISA 56K modem unless I set it to PnP and when I do that, Linux and DOS stop detecting it and Windows becomes my only choice, which I hate, when getting online. My mainboard is a Soyo 7VBA... what can I do so my modem works in ISA standard mode? It would work OK on my Pentium 200MHz with a TXPro.
- Somebody please recommend me some bibliography to learn to use Linux (mainly in text mode). Is there something that I can download online to read about that?
Thank you all in advance, guys. Cas.

I can not be of any help with your NIC, I haven't had any dealings with an ISA card.
With your GUI and Text mode, you need to google/search for init level 3 and 5 I believe. 5 will boot you into a GUI and 3 will boot you into text mode.
Since you are in text mode already, try logging in then type the following:
