Of course you will have to do this with X not running. Two solutions. 
Either edit /etc/inittab, like this:

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
#   0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#   1 - Single user mode
#   2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have 
networking)
#   3 - Full multiuser mode
#   4 - unused
#   5 - X11
#   6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#
id:3:initdefault:

... and then reboot.

Or, as root in a graphical terminal:

# init 3

And then login as root.

Cheers,

Niki
