To boot into single-user mode on a Mac with OSX, hold down Command-S while it's starting. It'll drop you into single-user, read-only. Following the directions it prints out - I believe you can run:
"/sbin/fsck -y / && /sbin/mount -wu /"
at the console...

I haven't been able to get X working from the console, but Aqua is much better anyways...
