1 is single user mode (lo login, no network). 3 is multi-user mode with network, no X11 5 is multi-user mode with network and X11 1 - Single user mode 3 - Full multiuser mode 5 - X11When you reboot with runlevel 3, you should get a login prompt in a text window. At that point the server is running and on the network. You can login on the console, you can login remotely (e.g., ssh), but there is no windowing interface.
You shouldn't have to remove xfree, you can re-configure X11 without removing it. If you really want to remove xfree, it would help to know which distribution you are running.

I changed the 5 to a 3 and rebooted, and nothing seemed to happen. My single user mode it says it 1 though, so I tried that too and it just takes me to the prompt of single user mode. How can I delete all the xfree from there? Thank you for you help.

To change the 5 to a 3, type:vi /etc/inittab In the editor window, navigate your cursor over the 5 and press r3 That should [r]eplace the 5 with a 3. The press :wq That should save the file. You can check that grep inittab /etc/inittab It should show the entry below. Then type reboot to reboot the server. Alfred
