Default linux newb installation questions :(

hey im a complete newb to red hat, and the default video drivers that the OS came with are pretty bad so I downloaded the ones off of the nvidia website, and as I was reading the readme, it mentions that I should "exit the X server", and also change the runlevel.

I'm sure that changing the run level means editing whatever that config file is that executes when the OS loads, my question is under redhat 9, what is the file called, and where is it typically kept? im completely new to the linux directory structure so im kinda lost finding my way around folders

all i know about X-Server is that its related to x windows which i guess is the driving force behind the gui that i get to stare at

any help would be appreciated !!
