Boot Debian to a command line and prevent X from starting on boot

Hi folks, I have a Debian lenny-stable install that I need a little
memory refresher with.

I need to boot and go straight to a terminal, and not start X on
bootup. I know there was a
way of doing so, but I forgot (I'm a little rusty and need to not be rusty).

Can someone tell me how to just boot and land on the command line,
bypassing X? Thanks!

Nobody's ever lost in life...they're merely taking the scenic route.
