Hi,
I'm new to linux,
Ive just installed a Knoppix 3.2 on HDD and it works fine, but I want to choose to startX or not at boot.
Could anyone please tell me how to do this?
Thank in Advance.

So you want text mode console as the default? If you then you need to edit the /etc/inittab file and change the default runlevel from 5 to 2.
In the /etc/inittab file:
...
...
# The default runlevel
id:5:initdefault:
change the 5 to 2
...
...
# The default runlevel
id:2:initdefault:The you can either reboot or force it to level 2 via the command: init 2

I hope this helps.
James
