booting in shell instead of KDE

This is a newbie question. I am running Fedora Core 4.
Where can I go to change the settings so that it boots in shell not in KDE.
I am also looking for some good documentation on commands etc. for newbies.

Another question is what is the new IRC server name for server?
I know became .. is it something else now?

open the file /etc/inittab as root and change the default runlevel to 3 instead of 5. Something like that:

A good newbie documentation site for commands is this one:

In /etc/inittab. Look for the line that says "id:5:initdefault:" and change the 5 to a 3.

#The default runlevel

You probably want to change the 5 to a 3. Here's a link on init process stuff:

As for the second thing I have no idea...
