Lightbulb Boot Manager: Where is it?

Hi guys, im just a newbie on Mandrake, i installed it about 2 days ago and everything worked fine, but i dont know what i did that the "boot manager" option in my kde control center simply disappeared, and now i cant boot in linux in console mode, can anyone say me if i unninstalled a rpm package or something and where to put it back? thanks

If your just wanting to boot to console instead of the GUI, just edit your /etc/inittab file and change your default runlevel to 3 instead of 5.
