If you don't install or configure X11 then it boots to init3 by

In kickstart the config option is 'skipx'.

As others have mentioned fedora and centos admin is very similar.

My personal preference of course is RHEL 5 for Oracle, your already
paying quite a bit for Oracle my view is might as well pay a little
bit more for a supported OS(and yes I know that CentOS is a clone
of RHEL..).

Unless of course Oracle changed their support policies I haven't
used it since I was at my previous company about a year ago. They
didn't support CentOS at the time.
