Two trivial problems

I'm writing because I have two problems that should be fairly easy to fix,
but which have confounded me so far.

First, I accidentally messed up a line in my XFree86-Config file, causing
my screen to display beautiful swirly lines and scrolling bars instead of
anything else. Since I have a graphical logon, I can't even get to the
console to change this back. How can I force X to quit and return to the
regular command line? Ideally, I'd like this to happen before I even

Alternately, can I prevent X from booting during startup (under a Debian

Second, how can I change the font size that X uses to display things like
the logon screen or a file browser? Regardless of which window manager I
use (Enlightenment is my default), I get rediculously large fonts and
button sizes in most windows. I think this is an X thing, because the
fonts that are obviously controlled by Enlightenment (like the titlebars
and pop-up menus) appear in reasonable dimensions.

Thanks to all who can help--

interpersonal relationship."

And Jesus said, "What?"
