Isn't it ALT+F2

yes, it's usual.
use ALT+CTRL+F2 to get a login screen and ALT+F7 to go back to X-windows

To start without X-windows type linux 3
when asked by lilo insted of just linux OR edit your /etc/inittab file. Change your 5 into a 3 (it's in something like ../3/initdefault/5 and one of the first lines)
