Not sure I am completely understanding what you want to do.but if you 
just want a terminal, and that's it ,why not change the default run 
level to 3 from the current 5. You can do this by just adding the number 
3 to the end of the line, in editing the grub parameters (press e or 
something at the grub screen.). If you don't have dual boot, I am not 
sure how you do this.......
