since you did not mention your server hardware, I will give you two ways:

- you may stop the x widows by

/etc/init.d/dtlogin stop

if you want it to be paremeneant  in multi user mode then rename the startup script in /etc/rc2.d

mv S99dtlogin .S99dtlogin

- if you have a sparc workstation, then from the ok prompt:

setenv input-device  ttya       for serial (or keyboard for graphics )
setenv output-device   ttya    for serial   (or screen for graphics)
