    Restart your mac holding down Cmd+S after the chime.

    Don't do what Schiffi said.

    That will boot you up as root, and is primarily used for troubleshooting (doing fsck etc.)

    What you want to do is in the login window, enter >console and no password. That will give you the console, and you can log in and have the full screen a terminal. (No Aqua overhead or anything.) This is much, much safer.

    To save time, you can always make a new user with the name >console, so you don't have to type in >console.
