OpenSolaris 2008.11 has a new feature called graphical boot. We call it internally the "Smiley face". Unfortunately this otherwise cool feature has one big problem - if you disable gdm and boot with the graphical boot you won't see the command line prompt. Which is why there is a second option in GRUB called the "text boot" which will work as the old regular text boot.
