If you want to boot into a console (ie non-GUI) environment,
then the file is /etc/inittab.
Or you can change your boot option to boot to console by specifying
a 2 (or 3) in the boot option in /boot/grub/menu.lst.
This would be the best choice as you can have one option for
gdm (GUI) and another for console.
Do a google for specifics.
