Re: xdm

   Debian boot process does not vary with changes in initlevel
   and if "X" is installed, by default,  boots into "xdm".  To
   remove this, use [update-rc.d] program,  meant for changing
   init parameters in Sys-V init process.   Read man for this.
   #update-rc.d -f xdm remove
   The things that are done by the script include removal of
   all system startup links for /etc/init.d/xdm ... i.e.


   You will boot into tty mode therafter, and would have to
   use "startx" subsequently to get into "X".
