Logging on from the terminal, not xserver.

hey, I tried searching the net and this site for the answer, first, but couldent find very much.

You know when fedora starts, well, most linux distro's, but im talking about fedora specificly; it will quickly flash the terminal logon prompt, and then load the x server for the x logon. How do I use the terminal based logon?
