If you want to flog a dead horse there is another thread you can join.

I don't understand what you mean by "Windows Emulator" and how it
relates to the rest of your question...if there actually is one.

Is it that you want to start your system in a "non GUI" state?  Or, do
you want to know how to switch from the GUI to a "terminal" session?

For the former, you have several choices depending on your intention.
If you *always* want to start in non-GUI mode then you simply edit your
/etc/inittab to start the system at "runlevel 3".  If you want to select
that option at boot time you do it in the grub screens.  Basically
adding 3 to the kernel parameter line.

If you want to switch from GUI mode to a Terminal then "Ctrl+Alt+F1"
through "Ctrl+Alt+F6" gets you to one of 6 "terminals".  "Ctrl+Alt+F7"
gets you back.

That's another useless thread...

Centos != FC5

Centos = RHELv4

Seems like lots of folks out there have a hard time dealing with change.

Why be difficult when, with a bit of effort, you could be impossible?
