You need to include the command that starts xdm somewhere in your initialization files, for examlpe /etc/rc.local
If you machine is using SYSV boot process style, then  usualy the multiuser level is level 3, then you should check in /etc/rc2.d and correct or create a script that starts this service (be aware of the rules concerned to creating these scriopts, I don't talk about this beacuse I am not aware that this is the Linux way to boot, I think the /etc/rc.local file should be enough).

   What you should include in one of these scripts is a line that says:
xdm <options>
check the man page of xdm to aply the options that are adequate for you.

   You can go to a console login typing <Ctrl><Alt><F2>
It works with other function Keys (in my keyboard from F1 that is the actual console, to F7 that is the X graphic environment).
