I am not sure I understand what you are getting at with this question.
Normally you set this by editing inittab and changing the init level to 3
(or 2 or 4, or whatever you have X set as).
e.g.  /etc/inittab

 I am assuming here that your X install automatically added the appropriate
links into the appropriate init.d directories. If not you can do that
