    Yep, this works from [F1] up to [F8], on my Mandrake box at least.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    You could also run Xconfigurator to change the setup file that decides whether or not you boot to X.
    Is it just me or is it cold in here?

    Do it like a man! Change the default run level, either automatically w/ LILO or manually... w/ LILO!

    Otherwise you could also modify the startup files. I leave you the pleasure of discovering the treasure!
