This is to use runlevel 3. There are five main runlevels used:
Runlevel 0: Shuts down. Not very useful to boot into.
Runlevel 1: Single-user mode, you are automatically root user (hence why if someone has physical access to a computer and can edit the boot arguments, they can change the root password)
Runlevel 3: Text multi-user mode
Runlevel 5: Graphical multi-user mode; default, and most people use this.
Runlevel 6: Restarts. Again, not very useful to boot into.
