  1) log in as root
  2) Type:

     chkconfig xdm off.

  3) all users need to copy /usr/bin/X11/X to their home directory
     (renaming the file to .xserverrc), removing the if test for
     windowsystem, OR be familiar enough with xinit to have an
     alternate command line.
  4) transfer all startup programs from .xsession/.sgisession to
     .xinitrc.
  5) the last program to start from .xinitrc must not exit.  When this
     one exits, the session terminates.
