It's part of the options line passed to grub in /boot/grub/grub.conf -- 

title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img                           ^^^^


If you want to boot to the console, removing rhgb won't accomplish
that; you'll still wind up booting to X.

To boot to the console, you want to boot in text mode, which means editing
/etc/inittab

    # Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
    #   0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    #   1 - Single user mode
    #   2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
    #   3 - Full multiuser mode
    #   4 - unused
    #   5 - X11
    #   6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    #
    id:3:initdefault:
       ^
If you're booting to X, that 3 will be a five; change it to 3 and you should
boot to the console, whether or not rhgb is on the grub options line.
