You should be able to just kill X without rebooting. ctrl + alt +
backspace should do it; you may have to press twice with never
versions of X.

I got X to work. By deleting the drivers mentioned in the hint. The first time I tried to compile the driver file I commented out the suggested drivers but Xorg -configure just produced a driver not found error. I recompiled the driver files with wget.list uncommented and Xorg -configure produced the blank screen. Once I deleted the drivers mentioned in the hint every thing worked as it is supposed to but the keyboard and mouse. I also had to recompile the kernel because I didn't have the proper video driver in the config file. But the keyboard doesn't work when I start X. Pressing control alt backspace does nothing.
