Or boot into runlevel 2.  'man inittab' again. :^)

Um, unless you explicitly use update-rc.d to change the runlevels that GDM/XDM/KDM/whatever is started and stopped in, it's started by default in all multi-user runlevels on Debian (that's 2, 3, 4 and 5). Only Red Hat (and SuSE, and Mandrake, and other RH-derived distros) follow in that tradition - and that's because they actually run the display manager through an inittab entry.
