    edit your /etc/inittab file and change

    id:5:initdefault:

    to

    id:3:initdefault:

    The comments right above it in the file explain what is going on here...


    # Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
    # 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    # 1 - Single user mode
    # 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
    # 3 - Full multiuser mode
    # 4 - unused
    # 5 - X11
    # 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.
