I installed RH9 (Shrike) and it installed with the GNOME DE as default. I want to make it boot to the command like by default. How can I change this?...

    As root, edit /etc/inittab and look for this line:
    id:5:initdefault:
    and change that to:
    id:3:initdefault:
    That's it. Now, if you want to the GUI you have to use the startx command.
