Updated went wrong

I used System>Configuration>Packaging>Mandrake Update in order to update my Mandrake 10 Official version. When I did that I wasn't sure about the version I had running and ended up downloading pkgs for Mandrake 10 Community.
After a reboot, now I can open the Configuration Tools anymore. It shows loading on the taskbar but doesn't open it.
Also Apache stoped and I can't start it again... I get this error when trying to start apache:
Starting httpd2: Syntax error on line 3 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/70_mod_php.conf:
Cannot load /etc/httpd/2.0/extramodules/ into server: /etc/httpd/2.0/extramodules/ undefined symbol: php_sprintf
What can I do to revert the pkgs installed, if that is the problem.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks to everyone, however I reinstalled Mandrake 10 Official and everything is fine now.

Now, I got another question, how do I use Root on the GUI? If I try to log off the user and then login as root, it won't let me. I mean I have only a single user option to login.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, I'm just posting in case someone runs accross the same problem
I figured the problem on my second question.
It's because my init file is set to load X when my box boots up, so I don't have a terminal to login as root and then startx.

Now another question.
How do I change the font of the Desktop? I mean the default font?
I did some updates and now the font has been changed and sucks pretty bad.
I went to configure desktop, but there is nothing about fonts in there.

Thanks in advance.

If you you are using KDE go to "configure desktop" and then into "look and feel". All of your font settings will be in there.
