Mandrake 10.1: Preventing KDE from loading at boot

How do I boot up to a command prompt? I do not want KDE to load automatically on startup.

Prevent kde from loading, one of two ways

Hi, Yes it can be done, the first may be easier....

once kde has loaded you can configure x to boot or not, it uses a dm (display-manager) and in Mandrake Control Manager /system /services, you should see it listed, just uncheck the box and when you reboot, no more x-windows.

When wanting to get back in, after logging-in type, startx and hit Enter and the display manager will load your x-windows settings.

The other way would be to stall the boot loader, by pressing an arrow key or something, then type in init 3, that may be telinit 3, see how you go!
