Have you tried alt-ctrl-f2, f3 etc.?

Select the emergency rescue option in the Grub menu (pressing down-arrow
once should be sufficient).

Then you can apply the techniques discussed earlier for turning off gdm.

I would solve this by booting into a GRML CD, then mounting the root
file system of the Debian installation and disabling gdm.

You really should have deactivated gdm after installing Gnome but before
