Disable GDM in Ubuntu 9.10

When I need to disable services in Linux I’m used to symlinks in /etc/rc2.d
(for debian based distros) .
Ubuntu 9.10 doesn’t have any symlink for gdm in /etc/rc2.d
so how do I disable the freakin’ service ?
It seems gdm is started by upstart now, but they’ve also switched to grub2 and according to ubuntuforums.org we can control this from grub.

edit /etc/default/grub

Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash” to

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash text"

And issue:

# update-grub
