Edit the file:  /etc/inittab and find a line that probably says something like:

id:3:initdefault:

Change it to:

id:5:initdefault:

On your next reboot it should come up to runlevel 5.   You can also log into root and from the command line type:

init 5

and your run level will change.

BTW, in my last comment the "init 5" command is a one-time-only occurance.  You'll need to edit inittab to make the change permanent.
