Sorry, yes, RL is Run Level. You can specify it in YAST, also on the Grub
boot screen by typing in 3 I think. If at any point you need a graphics
shell to do anything, you can still log in to the command line and issue a
"startx" command, which will automatically load the default graphics
manager (usually KDM or GDM).
