Subject: X-windows in startup

I had unsuccessfully configured X, set it aside for a day. Rebooted the
machine, only to have X start automatically. Problem is, X isn't working
beyond letting me enter username/password. 

C-ALT-D only gets me back to the initial GUI login! IS there a way to escape
out of this during the boot process?
