X11 is started at run level 5 on Redhat. If you don't what it started don't run at level 5. But then, other multi-user stuff wouldn't be available. You better off removing from the startup script.

look at /etc/X11/XF86Config  and locate the text below. What does it say?

section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

For example RED HAT is sitting right on top of my Welcome to ...... Also tool bar is unreadable due to words too big. Any ideas. Thanks.

But for restarting the Xserver, it means to simply shutdown the Xserver, and putting in startx again.. IF you have access to the console, if not, you probably need to reboot...
