I believe you're saying that you can't see all of the desktop in your
screen. If this is true, do "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86", and when you
are asked what is your maximum resolution, choose 1024x768. If this is still
too much, reconfigure again and choose 800x600.
To return to text login, "apt-get remove --purge xdm gdm kdm". If you change
your mind install one of the the packages. You only need one.
In X, use <ctrl><alt>F? for a text console. If you start at a text console
and then do "startx" for X, you should *not* do <ctrl><alt>F1. That console
is being used by your login. Use F2-F6 instead.
