Fedora command line only


Im used to slackware of linux, but Im trying Fedora. Is there a way to boot Fedora to a command line? right now it starts as a X Windows. Its using Grub as the boot loader, which I am not familiar with, as Im used to LILO. your help is appreciated thank you.

No problem. Just edit your /etc/inittab and change the runlevel from 5 to 3.

Your next boot will be to "terminal mode." from there, if you want to start Xwindows, just type "startx"

Have fun!
