Question Setting default run level

I am new to Linux of course and installed it two days ago. I installed Unreal Tournament 2004 succesfully but i have to install the video driver!!!!! I downloaded the correct file and i followed the readme. though at the beginning it says

In addition you should se your defualt run level so you will boot to a vga consol and not boot directly into X(please consult the documentation that came with your linux distribution if you are unsure how to do this; this is normally done by modifying your /etc/inittab file).

I dont understand how i configure the nvidia driver.
Pleas help

A shortcut is to hit "e" when you boot and are asked to select which OS. Then arrow down to kernel line, type "e" again and put a " 2" at the end of the line. Hit enter and then "b". This way you will not have to keep editing scripts.

After you get into the command line, cd to where you put the run_nvidia and enter sh ./run_file_name.
