 How do I get to the command line from KDE? <<

Here's the simplest approach: press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to a text-mode login
prompt. Log in as root, with your superuser password. Now, type

telinit 3

You should now be able to go ahead and mess with your X configuration, and
when you're finished,

telinit 5

If you want to come up in text mode always, change the default runlevel to
3 with the following

cd /etc
vi inittab

and you should see a lot of comments in the top half of the screen. Use the
arrow keys to move the cursor down to the line that reads


and then move the cursor so it's right on top of the '5'. Press 'r', then
'3', then press ':wq' to save the changed file and quit. You can change the
default runlevel back to 5 to get a graphical login whenever you want.
