    I am having the same problem with redhat 8.0 and gnome... although I don't want to make text login my default, I just want to switch to it and then back to gnome? Is making the change to that file the only way to do it.

    No, like we've said, you can just run "init 3" (or "telinit 3") in a shell (as root, of course). That changes the current runlevel.
    On the other hand, if you just want a temporary text login, just press CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch to a text vt. Then press ALT+F7 to go back (X usually puts itself on the seventh vt).
