Is it possible to set up the Grub screen to allow a choice to boot into
either text or graphics mode?
Yes. Just edit grub.conf and copy the same stanza you are booting from,
then add "3" to the end of the kernel line. Probably want to change the
titles also to show which is which.
And then, having booted into text mode, to load the GUI later?
As root, you can type "init 5" to go from text to GUI, and "init 3" to
go from GUI to text.
Of course, you can also type CTRL-ALT-F2 to bring up a text login
console even when the GUI is running.
