Unhappy How to exit the X server in Redhat?

Hi, all

I am a complete beginner at Linux Redhat 9 (my first day) but I am experiencing a extreme slow performance on graphics on my P2 400 MHz with Ultra TNT2 (yes I know itís an old machine). Not only does any 3D graphic rendering lag but the mouse cursor flicker sometimes (which I presume shouldnít be doing). And so I have decided to install new drivers in hope that the situation would improve. And now to the question, I am having problems installing the drivers . I have logged in as root but when running the installation it says that I should exit the X server before installing. And when I refer to the driver Readme it says:
In addition you should set your default run level so you will boot to a
vga console and not boot directly into X (please consult the documentation
that came with your Linux distribution if you are unsure how to do this;
this is normally done by modifying your /etc/inittab file).
But I have searched thought the Redhat help browser and havenít found anything useful regarding this topic. So I have turned to you guys for help I would be very grateful for any help at all .
