edit the file called /etc/inittab as root
change the line that says :
id:5:initdefault:
to read the following
id:3:initdefault:

It makes no difference, the above command will work.

also note that once you are in cli, there are two ways to bring up the GUI. You can type init 5 as root, and init 3 to bring it back down... or the way i perfer to do it is to simply type "startx"

if you use startx, all you have to do to drop back to cli is log out of the gui.
