The easiest is probably to not select the 'Desktop system' at the package selection screen during installation. If you only select 'Standard system' and uncheck everything else, it should not install the graphical environment.

Alternatively install from a 5.0.0 CD, do not allow it to update from a mirror during installation, and never run "apt-get upgrade".
