booting without a X login screen

My old install on FC5 used to boot without an X server or any pretty graphics ( so just the text) but i since did a reinstall and it is booting with a X server and log in screen. I remember reading somewhere how to change this but cant find it. Can anyone help?

See http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Runlevel for quite a comprehensive summary of the runlevels. You want to aim for runlevel 3
