I have Linux Red Hat 7.1 loaded on a PC.

I activated Gnome to see how it looked.

I then attempted to return to the command line mode and have been unable to achive this.

Even at start-up it immediately jumps into gnome.

PLEASE... has anyone else experienced this?
If so how did you return to the CLI?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Edit /etc/inittab.

Look for the section at the beginning of the file that has the following:

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 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
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:initdefault:


the line id:initdefault: is what sets the default runlevel. Yours is set to 5, which is the gui, and you want it set to 3, which is command line.
