Open a terminal window and
Code:
su -     (or sudo or whatever)
vi /etc/inittab
<change back to this>
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:
<save and exit>
init 6
That ought to do it.

You'll come up in a console. If you want X running you can probably use startx to do that (you should have that or something similar). When you're done with X, just exit from it which will get you back to console (and, as root, you can inti 0 to shut down the system).

Hope this helps some.
