Re: Lost video suddently during boot up - FC5

In case single user mode is necessary, this might be useful

 single user mode by performing the following:

1. At the boot loader menu, use the arrow keys to highlight the installation you want
    to edit and type [A] to enter into append mode.
2. You are presented with a prompt that looks similar to the following:
             grub append> ro root=LABEL=/
3. Press the Spacebar once to add a blank space, then add the word single to tell
    GRUB to boot into single-user Linux mode. The result should look like the following:
            ro root=LABEL=/ single
4. Press [Enter] and GRUB will boot single-user Linux mode. After it nishes loading, you will
    be presented with a shell prompt similar to the following:
5. You can now edit files or change the root password.
6. you can troubleshoot filesystems, etc

I set the video resolution above 1024x780 (don't recall exactly how much), it is a crt monitor, reboot, and the system starting in text mode first (log before log in screen), just has finished the Starting udev [ok], suddently the video is gone, sooner the monitor displayed video out of range message. Apparantly I have the reset the resolution of display!
How can I use the resue cd to boot into shell so that I can edit the XF86Config to reset the resolution? I never use the rescue cd to boot into shell before, no idea how to proceed the steps. Thanks for helping.
