Start the computer in run level 3.

During the boot-up options screen, add a 3.

For example:

linux 3

(that's a lilo example).

Once it's in runlevel 3, it should not start gdm and you will be in a console.

Once gdm (actually this is X doing this) locks up the keyboard and mouse,
you onviously won't be able to press ALT-CTRL-F1 to switch to a console.

Sounds like X is incorrectly configured.

Hope this helps,
