[mythtv-users] Ubuntu and Nvidia drivers - not quite to the point of tears

I have Ubuntu 6.1 installed off the "alternate" CD so I could get an XFS
filesystem. I have an NVIDIA 6200LE PCI-express card that I'm trying to
install the Nvidia binary driver set for.
I can't figure out how to stop X (!) I need to stop it to do the NVIDIA
install and I can't figure out how to. Since Debian always operates at
runlevel 2 I can't change runlevels to stop it. The NVIDIA docs say that
I should disable X so that I can reboot to a CLI and manually start X.
Sensible, but I do want to be able to go back to full graphical for Myth
operation. This machine will be my master backend (and a frontend,
local DNS cache, DHCP Server, and a few other light duty tasks.) I've
seen something mentioned about Upstart, but I can't seem to find it on
How on earth do I temporarily disable X through reboots?
