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?

First look at /etc/init.d/README. Most Unices put a README file there
describing the init scheme. In turn, this README in Debian points you
to Debian's policy manual, which tells all that has been decided about
the way a Debian system should work.
http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ look into CHAPTER 9!


Sincerely
Robert B
