I've just installed RH 5.9 and configured my system to start
in runlevel 5. Gdm starts correctly, but doesn't get keybord
focus so you can't login. CTR-ALT-Fn should switch to a
console, but it immediately switches back to X.
You can login to a console (without seeing it) and (for
example) do:  init 3  and the X server is shut down.
If you then (of if you have booted in runlevel 3)  type:
init 5,
gdm appears (again) and evryting is working like my old 5.0
system again...
