For gdm, find the gdm.conf file, which is /etc/gdm/gdm.conf. Look for the
[servers] section, and make it something like

0=/usr/bin/X11/X -nomacgamma vt7

This is what it would look like for Debian; for LinuxPPC or YellowDog you
may have a different X binary and may want to leave out vt7, but that's
where you put the X options. I imagine xdm and kdm are similar.
