Hmmnnn. Well that sounds like a rather severe method that should certainly
work... I didn't think to try it because I wasn't sure what might have gdm
as a listed dependency, but if I remember right, any time apt-get wants to
remove more than one package it gives me a chance to say "no" so I guess
I'll try it... Though, if Xubuntu DOES use gdm, I can't figure why:

update-rc.d -f gdm remove
update-rc.d gdm stop 20 2 3 4 5 .

didn't work... It is a *buntu distribution right?

He said as he shook his head and started to load the bigger guns...
{"apt-get remove $X" IS a bigger gun than "update-rc.d -f $X remove". Isn't it?}
