Re: [linux-392] Booting SUSE Linux w/o Gnome Desktop

Hey Doc, most distro's have a file /etc/inittab which has a line with  
something like id:5:initdefault: which sets the runlevel.

1 - Single user mode
  2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have  
networking)
  3 - Full multiuser mode
  4 - unused
  5 - X11

Those are the runlevels if you set yours to 3
id:3:initdefault
you will boot to the command line and you can start a X11 session by  
the command startx.
