    Edit /etc/inittab so that initdefault points to runlevel 3. You'll be in textmode in the next reboot.

    umm..
    change it to 2 then.,
    And when you get to the text prompt next time, you ought to do,
    init 5
    and then
    startx
    Or try removing xdm from the boot and default runlvl,
    From GNOME,
    [System] --> [Administration] --> [Services]
    Uncheck xdm from boot and default run levels,
    I use rc-update del xdm boot in gentoo for doing that.
