not running in run level 5 anymore

Hey I'm having trouble with my install it was fine before a program probably changed by resolution now I have a very dodgy install. The program that killed it offered me a solution. So I have to kill X server (init 3), setup /etc/inittab to start with runlevel 3, reconfigure X-server to normal resolution (800x600x16-bit) (with sax2), restart X server (init 5). How do I do this step by step from the command line?
