Well I just installed Fedora expecting there to be a login screen, but the isn't, insted I have to use a text system until i login and type "startx" which then loads up the operating system. Is there anyway that i can make so that it turns on to a login screen?

Thanks

Hello:
Open a terminal and log in as root using
su -
yourpassword
then
gedit /etc/inittab
and find
id:3:initdefault:
and change it to
id:5:initdefault:
Save your work, exit and reboot
