remote only xdm

I installed SuSE 8.2 successfully and my machine boots up to X windows. What I'm trying to accomplish is:

1. Configure the machine to boot to text mode (not to display X login dialog) and at the same time, allow remote machines to access X windows on the machine.

In other words, X should accept remote-only connections.

I have tried this and was unable to ever get it to work, I ask around and everyone told me you can't because to start a remote X session it must start in run level 5. I know that isn't much help, but that is what I have found.
