Open a terminal, su to root, then type
do your business of installing and the like. When finished type
to get back to graphical login, or

you can also kill xdm (or whatever you're using to manage X), using
/etc/init.d/xdm stop (and later on start it using /etc/init.d/xdm
start), replace xdm by the program you are actually using
