Why don't you just type in the username and passwd in the xdm login
screen? (that's where you're supposed to do it). Apparently you don't
get that screen (on the seventh tty, in your story). What does (eventually)
show up on that seventh tty?

first type runlevel, and see what level you are booting in (runlevel
is in /sbin/runlevel). Then, if runlevel says "N 4", you're in level
4, and type
cd /etc/rc4.d
mv S99xdm K99xdm

and you're set.

So, what's your second problem?
