i don't have the idea about the services. But you can boot your machine using the bootable cd of your Fedora distro.
Get inside and do whatever you want.

...for instance - disabling those services again that you think are causing the problem
or examining the log-files for another reason (these are in /var/log - not on thelive-cd...)

sorry, the question was "how ?"
In short - the same procedure you used to enable them - or looking through /etc/init.d and making the offending startup-files not executable
