Question Disable KDE from starting.

Hi guys,

I'm very new to Linux. I'm using Mandrake and would like to stop KDE from starting up. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance.

if you want to login in a text mode not in xwindows, go to /etc find the inittab file and search for the entry init:5:init default and changed it to init:3:init default.
