Several thingfs you can do here - either remove the graphical login
with apt-get remove <gdm/kdm/xdm/whatever> or stop the service from
starting with update-rc remove <service>.  Check out the man pages for
both to get the idea.

To make Gnome the default, update-alternatives is your friend - check
out the man pages and look through /etc/alternatives for the things
you can set.  If you don't want to set the system wide defaults, but
just your user session, you can do this with a line in your
~/.xsession file that reads, by itself:
gnome-session
Then when the gnome-session is up, you can pick the WM used by Gnome,
and save it.
