GNOME is the GUI, You need to change your driver config, which
possibly means XFree86. Read the XFree docs to know what to do. Hint:
the file you need to change is /etc/X11/XF86Config (at least under my
Linux distro, yours too).

I do not follow you here at all. My first six consoles are running a
text login process, and the seventh is used for X when I need it
(manual startx, no gdm... sometimes I have 2 or 3 X, so 8 and 9
console are used too).

What do you have and what do you want?
