How do you make Puppy boot into the command line?
 
I have a full installation of Puppy on a computer. It boots through GRUB to get to Puppy. What do I have to add to the GRUB line to make it not load xwindows on start and just go to the command line? I would want this to be a permanent thing and not something I would have to type in every time I started Puppy.

Thanks for your time.

Check your /etc/inittab file. If you see something like this:

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by XXXXXXX Linux are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:5:initdefault: <-- change the 5 to a 3
