why not install it with a desktop environment, but leave your initdefault as 3, making you boot into the command line. You can launch X at any time, but then you can keep yourself cloistered at the command line

You can try removing all desktop environment packages, and use only twm (supplied with X11), which is a very very minimalistic window manager. However, you'll still need a login manager like xdm if you want the system to boot to a graphical environment automatically.
