The following link should help.

How do I change the system to boot into text mode (runlevel 3) instead of the graphical login (runlevel 5)?

You should try searching before asking a question. More often then not, the answer is already out there.

How can I determine which runlevel my system is currently in?

This may not work on Red Hat 8, but give it a try.
