    I just installed CentOS 4.2 on a brand new dell compuer, everything went great, I installed Cpanel and it worked, but when I restarted the server, centos says: cant start Xserver for the graphical interface. This also happend to me on another computer. Is there anyway I can fix or maby a diffrent way that I have to install cpanel so this does't have to happen?

    But it would be very hard to maintain a box without graphical interface

    huh?? it would?? are you serious? I can almost bet you that 99.9% of the admins in here have NEVER managed a cPanel hosting server that had x running on it. In fact from OS installation to setup to configuration and management, to cpanel installation and configuration ..almost every bit of it is done completely remotely using the same basic tools we all know and use daily. command line shell access through SSH can do it all. The only time the GUI comes in is when you get WHM and cPanel running and you use it through a web browser. If X were running on a cPanel server I am not sure most of us would know how to use it on a web hosting box with cPanel. The first thing I would do is kill it.

    yup x has no business on a web server its a resource pig I have had it running with cpanel (but not on a production server) installed after the cpanel install, would never run it on a a active hosting server

    As noted on cPanel's site, X is disables completely during install. X on production webserver is a huge security risk.

    cpanel is hosting admin software it is not security software if you talking a software firewall then you need to configure it via the command line
