I just installed the latest version of SUSE using Microsoft's Virtual PC software. I was wondering where do I need to go under SUSE to change my login to be in text mode.

For example after all the services load up I want to see something like

Login:
Password:

Afterwards I want to have the option to go into the X environment (startx). Where do I go to make this happen under SUSE?

under yast there is a boot config tool. I'm pretty sure you have to set the boot for a lower runlevel.

Not sure what directing someone to the SuSE forums is going to help you with sense you're asking here :)

Anyhow, what you're looking for is to change the default run level from 5 to 3. I'm sure there's some gui trick to do it within the services, but I just go into my /etc/inittab and manually edit that reflect 3 instead of 5.

I suppose if you wanted to be slick about it, you could create a new boot entry in your lilo.conf or grub.conf, for booting to X or not, and just add an init 3 as a boot option to the entry you don't want to see X load on.
