booting with / without KDE SuSE 8.2


Bought a SuSE 8.2 box preinstalled. KDE seems to work fine - what I want to know is ...
How to turn off the desktop on boot - I just want a shell (and the ability to load the desktop manually?).
Is this as simple as editing text boot file(s)?
Thanks for any info

Welcome to LQ,

and it's quite easily "fixed" indeed ... Edit
/etc/inittab

Change the line
Code:
id:5:initdefault:
Code:
id:3:initdefault:
Cheers,
Tink

Thanks!
I'm changing the run level (?)
Which takes out XDM (?)
So during session I could start X11 manually(?)
