Question how do I set run level for startup?

I set up my RH 8 to automatically go to graphical login and run Gnome at startup. I would like to set it so it just goes to the command prompt at boot. Any ideas?

yup, darthtux is right, although you could also put
if you don't need any networking as well
remember though, NEVER set the default to 0 or 6, or you will have alot of fun with the computer shutting down or rebooting before it even finishes booting
