run program outside xfree86- how?

#1
i have a configuration program that says i need to shutdown all instances of xfree86 before executing it. how do i do this? i tried hitting C when that list of OS's pops so it puts me in a command line, but i cant figure out how to run it from there

i am running KRUD linux on a virtual machine through VMware workstation 4.0 from a windows xp system.

thanks in advance

check the /etc/inittab config file and see if there are different run levels, try multiuser runlevel, (3 on slackware) that should put you at a terminal with no x running, then the program should be able to be run ./programname or /usr/lib/programname/programname you will have to use pico /etc/inittab to reconfig the file to boot back to GDM or KDM
