When you boot into text mode (init 1) this disables networking and
graphics. You can turn networking back on with this command:

/etc/init.d/networking start

Best to connect to the internet with an ethernet cord, as setting
up WiFi from the command-line is a pain (especially if the
encryption is decent.)

I'm not sure why you need networking though. You just have to
uninstall the siliconmotion driver. Then you can reboot, and you'll
have a nice slow graphical environment. Then you can fiddle with
the squeeze x stuff at your leisure.

P.S. And as always, remember that you sometimes have to press Fn+F5
to turn the wifi radio on after you get to the graphical desktop.
