I turned off a tad too many services... need to "restore settings" wondering how...

I turned off a huge load of services in mandrake 9.1 with this servicedrakx (whatever it is called). I restarted and when i try to start x it gives me a error message about trying to initialize a font ... ? something like that... Anyway, i was wondering how i could reverse these changes i have made through the console.
thnx in adv.

probably xfs. As root do
service xfs start

and then see if you can start X.
