Is it possible to change the console login mode from graphic to character mode at boot time?  If so how?

You can change the mode from graphic to text and vice versa with dtconfig (see the man page for details). The change that dtconfig makes takes affect at the next boot. On the way up you could boot to single user mode and run dtconfig to make your change and then exit out of single user mode.
