You can't be both

If you are logging in from a console, then that's console. If you are logging in graphically, then that's via kdm, gdm or xdm. From there it's "KDE or Gnome"

Anyway, have a look at /etc/profile You are looking for PS2 most likely...

Cool

I think what he means is when you boot to runlevel 3 for the initial login. I don't know how to change that either.

The file you seek is /etc/issue

discover the lore of 'man getty' for cryptic escape codes that help make your login screen truly unique.
