Question X not automatically appearing

I was downloading a large file (NVIDIA drivers) and read something about pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to a console to install the drivers there. I've known that. To get back to my X session, I pressed Ctrl+Alt+F7 (pressed each F key until it came back!). Now, when I reboot my laptop, it comes up to a text-based login, and X doesn't come up until I press Ctrl+Alt+F7. It seems as if I've accidentally changed some default behavior. How can I get it back to starting X normally?

Thanks!

i've had that too right after fc6 fresh install, don't know if compiling a new vanilla kernel helped, or perhaps some updates, but that problem is gone now

/etc/inittab is set to run at level 5. Also, when I hit Ctrl+Alt+F7, it's not like X has to spend some time starting- it's already up and running... I'm running an update now, but it's almost 250MB worth so... I'll report back later. Thanks!

Hello:
This was an early bug and has been corrected in the updates that you are now doing.

Excellent. Did it have something to do with the i586 kernel bug? I ran that before applying these updates.

Nonetheless, thanks!
