Default X-Server

Hi, I consider myself to be a fairly proficient Windows User, and have just installed fedora core 2.0 on my PC. (I know its not cutting edge but oh well....)

I am trying to install my graphics driver, but when I run the "sh" command I get told that I am running X-Server, and I must quit it to install the driver.

How do I quit the X-Server? - Is there a terminal command I can run?

Default Re: X-Server

I usually do this in those cases:

log out my user
hit Ctrl-Alt-F6 to get a text console
login as root
type "telinit 3" to go to runlevel 3, which disables the X server
do the things I want to do
type "telinit 5" to return to runlevel 5, enabling X again.
