Desktop file not working in Ubuntu Unity, unless it is executable which breaks packaging guidelines

Hello all. I have installed the above distro. However, when booting, all i have is a flashing screen !!! The processor is an AMD Athlon LE-1640 and SiS Mirage Graphics Driver.
First question: How do i stop from booting into the desktop environment to get the command line?
Second: What syntax do i use to drop the resolution to a lower one?
Third: If that is not possible; can i SSL into the OS from another pc to correct the problem as root?
