Thanks for the directions Karl Goetz. 

I installed sysv-rc-conf and I disabled 'gdm' at runlevel 2 and my
computer is successfully booting directly into the Terminal and I able
to start GNOME with the 'startx' command, but now I am not able to
'Shutdown' my system throught GNOME and to shutdown from the Terminal I
need Adminstrator's privilege,Therefore it is needed that I log in to my
other account ( with Adminstrator's privilege ) to shutdown my system.Is
there a way now,after disabling 'gdm' at runlevel 2,to shutdown my
system through GNOME without needing Adminstrator's privilege ?, please
give me directions.

Thanks your help.  

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to
your grandmother.
