[RESOLVED] How do I boot into KDE on CentOS 4.4?

Hi all,

Due to recent demands of my boss, I've cleared one of desktops of WinXP and have just network-installed CentOS 4.4 via PXE boot. Currently, CentOS is booting into command line. This is fine for a lot of what I'll be doing, but I will still need the GUI for a lot of other things (especially since I'm just starting out), and I need to know where to set the right boot level. A while ago, I knew how to do this, but I'm not sure where the file is located anymore. I think I need to change it to boot into boot level 5. Where is the file I'm looking for?
