If you want to save this setting permanently, edit the file /etc/inittab and change the initdefault setting (near the top) from 5 to 3.

Alternatively, append 3 to the kernel boot options when you boot up. With LILO you can just type this in when choosing the option to boot. I don't know how to do this with GRUB.

You can configure the packages that you want to get installed during installation of the OS ...remove X server and corresponding window manager software, and allow installation to continue ...

Like Lee told you, modify /etc/inittab file accordingly...
