Choose the Linux-nonFB option.

When your machine is booting up, you will see a list of choices, Linux, Linux-nonfb, and failsafe.

Linux boots to your default desktop, and is the equivalent of runlevel "init 5".

Linux-nonfb means "non frame buffer", and is the equivalent of runlevel "init 3".

failsafe boots to no X at all, as a single user, and is used for maintenance and rescue. This is the equivalent of runlevel "init 2".

Before the counter reaches 0, use your arrow keys to highlight one of these options, and press enter. If you do nothing at all, you will boot to the default (which is usually kde).

See: man init, man runlevel.

Incorrect. Starting the nonfb version passes an alternative kernel boot string which disables all the fancy graphics as the computer is starting up. Under this, the system will still boot to runlevel 5, but any vitual console screens will be a standard 80x25 display, not a svga 800x600 or more.

Again incorrect. The Failsafe option starts the machine in Runlevel 1. Instead of all the system services like the X font server, Network time daemons, the sound system and the Display manager being started via init, a single-user bash shell is started.
