Changing Run Levels


Just a quick question: How do I change my run level to where Linux boots into a command line by default instead running X first? I'm running RedHat 7.2,Mandrake 8.1 and Suse 7.3.

Thanks

1) run 'init 3' on a command line for instant
or
2) edit /etc/inittab replacing the 5 with a 3 in the id:5:initdefault line
