I've gotten the first eight done easily, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to find everything past ten, but I can't seem to find the answers to nine or ten. If anyone has any advice, I would really appreciate it.
Distribution: debian, gentoo, os x (darwin), ubuntu
to stop the gui you can either simply user the logout function provided by the desktop exvironment you are using, or a very unclean way is:
hit ctrl+alt+f1 and hit ctrl+c
but i dont think anyboy will be impressed with the last solution :-)
