Change run level on Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS

Change the default run level on Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS distros to boot into server/console mode rather than GUI (from runlevel 5 to runlevel 3).

As root, edit /etc/inittab using vi or vim.  It should be somewhat self-explanatory, however make this change:

# id:5:initdefault:

id:3:initdefault:
