Can you answer this question?

I'm new to linux and I trying to get familiar with it, is a long process but I'm liking it. My question is : I have Nvidia drivers, I followed the instructions, but I'm stuck. " Before beginning, you should exit X server. In addition you should set your default run level so you will boot to console and not start up X "

Can someone tell mehow to do this? I'm using Red Hat 7.2
I have tried to search the documentation and I can't find any info on how to do this....

Thank you very much for your help.....

Edit /etc/inittab
After some lines with # in the beggining you'll se
Change 5 to 3 and reboot. You can proceed with driver installation. You'll start in text mode. To run X from it use startx command. After drivers are installed change this '3' back to '5'
