vi /etc/inittab

Look for a line like this:

id:5:initdefault:

This line specifies default runlevel on boot.
Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:

0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
1 - Single user mode
2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
3 - Full multiuser mode
4 - unused
5 - X11
6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)

Change the 5 in the quote above to a 3. Save and reboot.
