If you want to temporarily disable booting to xdm on your VT100 and
revert to xdm once you get back the monitor, just disable the xdm
startup from all levels.

   # update-rc.d -f xdm remove

After you get back the monitor,

   # update-rc.d xdm defaults

I always pass on good advice.  It is the only thing to do with it.
It is never any good to oneself.
