Try installing the sysv-rc-config tool (with apt-get install
sysv-rc-config or aptitude install sysv-rc-config), and run
sysv-rc-config as superuser (root.). If you're using gdm as you're login
manager, remove it from your default runlevel (who -r), or if you're
using a different login manager remove the appropriate entry.
