[NBLUG/talk] Starting in gdm rather than xdm

In order to avoid having a read error from the installer after well
along the process, I decided to try loading the minimal Linux and then
installing what I need. But that is requiring me to expand my knowlege
about the installation/boot process (not a bad thing).
So, I used yum to install the GNOME grouplist and I set the ID in
inittab to 5 so it would boot in the graphical mode. That did not
happen, so I loaded the X-Window grouplist and it did bring me into the
graphical mode (after asking me the setup questions I usually get when I
do an install in the Graphical mod).
Now my main question is "how do I get Linux to come up in Gnome"? It is
coming up in what I suspect is X-Windows.
Again, many thanks for your help and patience....
