Description Jeff Ludwig 2003-01-19 17:51:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
Packaged installer uses incorrect settings for AcerView 54e monitor when
configuring XFree86... Horizontal rate should be 30-54, vert rate should be
50-110.  Most difficult part was figuring out how to change the runlevel to 3 so
that graphical login is not used.  Need section in installation manual
describing how to force lower runlevels (boot with "linux 3" from boot disk). 
Most references have you edit /etc/inittab which is correct but you can't do
this when the graphical login screen does not work!

Comment 1 Sandra Moore 2003-01-21 15:22:31 UTC
While this information is not explicitly in the manual, there is a brief section
on rescue mode in the boot loader configuration content
(http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-8.0-Manual/install-guide/s1-x86-bootloader.html#S2-X86-BOOTLOADER-RESCUE)
that refers the reader to the Red Hat Linux Customization Guide -- where you can
find more information on booting into a safe enviroment
(http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-8.0-Manual/custom-guide/ch-rescuemode.html).

However, we will look into adding more content of this type to future editions
of the Installation Guide. Thanks for your feedback!
