Boot sequence

Hi everyone.

I've sucessfully installed Fedora 11 into a SunVirtualBox machine, but I would like to elimate from the boot sequence the GUI Startup. If I need it I could invoke the GUI from the command line.

How I coud get this??

Thanks very much

regards

Mauricio

gedit /etc/inittab

No problem. Once you reboot you should be starting in "text-mode" only.
