Edited 5/14/2009, No-Replies have read everything I can find trying to resolve problem. Continued at * so order may be followed..Please help.
Fairly new to Fedora, I had reset my Monitor setting from the Graphical Interface on the Desktop, (got an out of range error) Was able to SSH in and reset Xorg to correct values, however now the server does not boot to the Graphical Desktop, just has a spinning blue circle on black background. The server has booted and I can get in with SSH, all functions of the server appear to be working correctly, i.e. web, mail, ftp, etc. However it never goes to the Graphical login page as before.
I know this is probably just giving a command to start the desktop, but I'm lost. All help is appreciated.
The forum is GREAT!!!!
*Fedora 8..the perfect server + ISPconfig. On boot when Fedora states press any key I can edit the following line:
ernel /boot/vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-108.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=67a30fd4-7022-4ebe-8f9d-07cd2aabd732 rhgb quiet
ernel /boot/vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-108.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=67a30fd4-7022-4ebe-8f9d-07cd2aabd732 3
log in as root and startx
then can get to desktop

At this point I have tried everything I can find in the forum to get the gui to come up on reboot. Nothing works. It justs sits ther with a spinning little blue circle. I have done 7 installs now, each time after completing my installs this problem comes up.
5/15/2009 New information obtained: Performed new install of Fedora 8, The perfect server... + adding the Graphical desktop. Rebooted after every update and install and always was able to get to the desktop, then installed ISPconfig, upon reboot the problem was back again. (Sorry for the additions, but was afraid of double posting)
