Text Startup

Forums: 

Hello To all,

This is a real novice question. I am running Linux Mint 12 kernel version 3.0.0.16-generic. I want to change the startup screen from graphical to text. I was hoping someone could help me and refresh my memory. I looked at a site and it told me to edit a file in the /etc/inittab folder but i remember there was another way. Does anyone know how to change this?
