What's your hardware configuration, especially the display card and monitor?

You can try typing 'startx' and see if you can get in. There may have been problems with hardware and perhaps your ram is not up to the specifications: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc5/release-notes-ISO/#id3099264

If you want it to start in GUI mode, check /etc/inittab and look for this line.


If it says 3, it boots to command line.

Change to a 5 and it will boot to GUI.
