At the lilo prompt do "linux single", to bring you to single user mode from
edit the /etc/inittab file and see the section
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
Now play with your video card settings using "startx" to kick off X each time.
You should also be able to kill X with "ctrl-alt-delete".
