Hi,

Is there a way to add a choice in Grub to start Fedora without X (just
command prompt)?

Thanks!

With or without X11 is most times a change of runleven. Mist linux distro's have runlevel 3 for text only and runlevel 5 for X11.

Hence, while booting, add "init=3" (or just "3"?) to the boot-commandline for text-only. For X11 it is "init=5" (or just "5").

You can add grub entries (/boot/grub/grub.conf) that specify the runlevel

You can edit /etc/inittab to change the default runlevel.
