For my knowledge you can always:

     /etc/init.d/<daemon> stop

where <daemon> is your login manager (gdm, kdm, xdm, ...).  This works for
all daemons on Debian and if I'm not completely wrong on RedHat and so I guess
on Mandrake as well.  SuSE seems to be the only big distribution which breaks
this simple principle.

Hope this helps
