Why not do a control+alt+(backspace) or (escape).  To get out of X.  (I've
forgotten what it is on linux)

If you have wscons running, then the default for X should be screen 5.  Try
changing to another virtual terminal (control+alt+Fx(key)).

Does any of that work?

Why can't you get or make a boot disk?

Try the above and if that doesn't work, I have a long winded solution.  :)
