Booting F9 with NO X11

I've installed F9 x86 on an hp 2133. But, as I expected, the graphical
interface is screwed up. (I had the same problem with the LiveCD). I've
tried passing the following options at boot (vesa skipddc vga=794) but a
weird somewhat blank screen always comes up and the system is locked (I
can't get to a console to try to fix X).

How can I boot just to a non-graphical system so I can get to a console?

I've asked repeatedly on this list for related info but so far no one
has responded. Please, I need some help!
