Look in the /etc/inittab file. Some distros specify it in their bootloader's configuration, but those are rare.

The /etc/inittab file contains comments that explains what the various run levels are for. On your system*, you will use either run level 3 or run level 5. Run level 5 is normal if you want to use KDE or Gnome.

* Some distro's use different run levels.
