Well, if you want many things simultaneosly, install Linux WITHOUT X. Means NO GUI. And NO Graphic Driver, which may easily broke on you. Choose yourself - DSL with GUI, Debian w/o GUI.
Just to point out, any distro can bootup without X starting... It's just one edit away And the tutorial I linked (DSL-N) mention how to do that. The hdd space is another issue, though DSL is alot smaller than a standard Debian-base install (but I do recommend Debian none the less..)
