If you use the advice from François you can make the other changes by using
su - to get to root without having to reinstall.  In textmode you have
control over your system that the graphical boot takes away from you. 
Besides on all the systems I've tried so far it is much faster to login and
type startx than is tis to wait for all the graphics.
