It's not that hard. If you are already at run level 5, just do a "/
sbin/telinit 3". If the system has not booted yet, use the Grub
command "a" to append either a 1 or a 3 to the command line so that
you only go to runlevel 1 or 3. You can then install the Binary
Nvidia driver. To go (back) to run level 5, just do a "/sbin/telinit
5". All these commands have to be done as root, BTW.
