i normally do not reply to 'text/html' post, but this time i am making
and exception. [see guidelines link at bottom line of post]

i will guess that you are booting run 'level 5', so open a terminal,
su to root.

change to /etc directory and edit inittab and change;

'id:5:initdefault:' to 'id:3:initdefault:'

reboot and log in as root.

note: reply again in 'text/html' and i will not reply.



peace out.
