While we are veering a little of topic here, you can disable gdm (for indiana)
or cde-login for Nevada to get to the console mode. In Nevada, you can also
select console login from the gui and it will close it down for you to login at
a text console.

For a few more details, the test I was doing was attempting to copy around 1TB
of data via ssh and zfs send | zfs receive. My data was all pretty
compressible, no jpegs, mp3s etc. Lots of source and log files.
