The problem is that the runlevels 2,3,4 and 5 are identical by default.
To make this work, you need to remove the symlink to the kdm script
from some runlevel directory. To have runlevel 3 without kdm, do this:

rm /etc/rc3.d/???kdm

After that, booting into runlevel 3 will not load XFree (if you use kdm
as your login manager).
