Cool Ubuntu Server Desktop Question

Hello again lol, i've just installed Ubuntu Edgy Eft 6.10 Server and have also installed ubuntu-desktop using APT, I was wondering how could I get it so that it boots up into the normal terminal type view, then if i wanted to type in a command to open Gnome?
I think I found a way to do this before but i'm still a newbie and can't really remember.

Many thanks
dan

You can prevent the X server from starting with the update-rc.d command. Just find the name of the appropriate init script in /etc/init.d and run
Code:
update-rc.d -f name remove
