Default

On a text terminal, with root permission:
telinit 3
(then do the install stuff)
telinit 5

telinit switches runlevels, 3 is multi-user text only, 5 is multi-user with X servers, 1 is single-user (for repairing things), 6 is reboot

The file /etc/inittab contains a line that allows you to change the default mode your system boot will boot to.
