Question how do I set run level for startup?


I set up my RH 8 to automatically go to graphical login and run Gnome at startup. I would like to set it so it just goes to the command prompt at boot. Any ideas?

yup, darthtux is right, although you could also put
id:2:initdefault:
if you don't need any networking as well
remember though, NEVER set the default to 0 or 6, or you will have alot of fun with the computer shutting down or rebooting before it even finishes booting
