"Start up X11 session manager"

Hey guys.
I got Slack 10.2 on my lappy and I was costumizing my kde. I got
Think Linux Splash screen from kde-look and followed its instructions.
On KDE control center it worked. Now when I reboot my lappy it freezes at "Start up X11 session manager"
It's default is to load up in GraphicalMode.
Any ideas to fix this?

Well you could boot up with a live cd and mount you filesystem and undo whatever it was that you did to tell it to try and load that splash screen. Or if you have your install disk you may have a rescue option.
