Use from the looks of your posting below "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" (without 
the quotes) once at the console. You may want to use the console login 
option if it is present at the login screen for the GDM then issue the 
command mentioned as root of course.

S99gdm which is strange most people using KDE would probably use kdm to 
start it which would be S99kdm if it was present.
