Disabling Welcome screen GUI
I want to disable to welcome screen gui so I can log in using the shell because... using the shell looks cool - I can't seem to find an option to do this in the gdm config file. Any ideas other than ctrl+alt+f1?
Do you want to just stop GDM from loading? You can do that by removing the S99gdm link from /etc/rc2.d (or whatever rc directory corresponds to your default runlevel).Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
Sorry, stupid answer.

From the System menu run Services, find the GDM and uncheck it. X will shut down and you will be able to login without X.
