y,y,y, i get it

sorry for such "questions", i am really new linux user, so sometimes i am
blocked with really simple problems whatever so this is my fedora conspiracy

booting, start-up everything is ok, except last line, after mdmonitor(or
mdpd), kernel do not support ... ?

(unfortunately i can not see error, and do not know how to see log file in
"Fail safe" mode)

then next thing is:

after login on, as root or normal user, system hangs at Splash screen. 

i tried with:


Generic LCD 800x600

Monitor 800x600


i can not save any monitor type, seems that is something with monitor, gnome
and X server

when i trying to edit XF86Config file in fail safe terminal mode seems that
their is not such a file, possible ??

i also tested memory and everything seems all right

That's actually the successful conclusion of booting into single user mode.

It's a prompt waiting for you to type commands. Single user mode is 

non-graphical unless you start the GUI manually.
