System freezes with multiple monitors

I have a dual boot with Windows XP and Red Hat 8.0. I have been trying to configure multiple monitors in Red Hat 8.0. I successfully got them booting seperately. In an effort to boot with them both, I messed with the XF86Config and Red Hat 8.0 automaticly launchs X graphicly.

Is there a way that I can boot to just a command line?

If so, I can replace the XF86Config with my backup. Then I can further debug the two monitor setup. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, I was able to reboot and write over the old XF86Config.
I am having a hard time getting Red Hat to use multiple monitors. Everytime it trys to load up, it freezes.

It can not load KDE.
Is GNOME better?

I am using two ATI cards both Rage 128. One AGP the other PCI.
Thanks, C
