You use the same procedure that I use, but he wants to bootup in a
graphical mode only so that the family's transition from Windoze to
linux is a smooth one and is accepted easier/better.

I have come from a dos thru to xp - the text mode hopefully intimidates
my very rare visitors to keep their hands off my computers unless I know
what they are doing.  I have calmed down only a little from the "You
touch my computer and you will die or pull back a stub" attitude.  I
also run my computers in text mode unless I am checking my email or
reading web pages, but my computers run 24-7.  ~Anne
