boot CLI vs GUI


i am currently automatically starting gnome on a redhat box and would like it to start up as command line and not run gnome or x unless specifically called with startx.

how do i change that boot option?

thanks

edit /etc/inittab and change the default from 5 to 3, it will be documented in the file itself.
