Question keyboard command

er, isnt there a combination of keyboard strokes that will drop
linux from runlevel 5 (xwindow) to runlevel 3 (text command line)?
like alt/ctrl/esc or something? thanks for any help. i want to try
sndconfig from runlevel 3 to see if that helps with getting my soundcard working. i've seen comments in this forum and in rh 8.0
documentation that sndconfig needs to be done on runlevel 3.

Read the man pages for telinit. That'll do it for you!
