Go to /etc/inittab

look for the line that says....


If you notice the paragraph before that you will see a listing of the different run levels. 5 is X11 (graphical mode)
3 is multi-user mode(non-X11 mode) change the 5 to 3 reboot.

that should work.

not every distro works with that init5 = X mode though.
Debian for example works with init3 = X, so you should double check.
