Ok so this sounds like something i need to take up with Compiz....

Onto a new question so when, I open another virtual console and I log into that. Lets say I fool around a little bit there, and then in that console I type invokerc.d gdm start and boom I am back to the Gnome Desktop, how do I go back to the other console I previously had open?

That would appear to be a question specific to your desktop environment
or window manager. You might be a GNOME sufferer^Wuser? ;->
(I'm not ordinarily a GNOME user. I believe the GNOME people these days
wrap their desktop environment around the metacity window manager,
though obviously you're promarily using a compiz 3D-fizzling-windows
variant. You might want to consult GNOME/compiz/metacity documentation
about non-mouse ways of changing between running windows.)
