Have been running RH 9 for the longest time, and I just made the switch to FC1....Does anybody know how to switch to the text login rather than the graphical login ?? it never gave me the option during setup....TIA

Change this line

id:3:initdefault: #multiuser with networking

id:1:initdefault: #single user

It may be a bit different depending on the distro

That is correct for rh9.

I leave my runlevel at 3 at all times, and just type startx to get into the GUI. Logging out of the GUI drops you back to the CLI with the runlevel set at 3.
