Changing from graphical login to text login

How can I change the login from a graphical to the text based? I need to install new nvidia drivers and I can't do it from the failsafe console.

Thanks in advance.

Open /etc/inittab and locate where it says:
Change it from 5 to 3, so that it looks like this:
This way you'll boot into initlevel 3, which is text mode.
