Hello All,

I have just installed Debian Linux, and by default the systems boot into X
server. I want to boot into the command line only. How do I do that?
I have edited the 'inittab' file, and the 'initdefault' line from 2 to 3.
That does not work, the system still boot to the desktop login.
What am I doing wrong?

Debian 3.0 R2
Kernal 2.4.20
XFree86 4.1.1
