    The line in /etc/inittab you are interested in looks like this:

    # 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)
    #
    id:5:initdefault:

    Use 3 or 5 as appropriate on that line. Don't change anything else in that file unless you know what you're doing, as you will likely need to boot from the CentOS Rescue Disk to get your system to boot if you screw it up...
