Err... Last I saw, Debian didn't do the "3=console, 5=graphics" initlevels
like RedHat and other distros did.

All you need to do is get rid of the "S99gdm" or somesuch inside your
/etc/rc2.d/ directory.

It's been a while since I fooled with any of this (since I use KDE via KDM,
and it works just fine :^) ), but there's probably a "Debian way" of
configuring this.

Perhaps a "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" or some-such???
