The correct syntax is startx -- -bpp 32 !! options before the -- go to
the startx-script, options behind the -- are passed to the xserver.

what did you do to stop it? why do you want to stop it? you can switch
to a console by pressing ctrl+alt+FX (normally X=1...6) and back with
alt+F7. So when you normally work with X there is no need to stop it. If
you really want to stop it, type ps axw | grep xdm note the process-id
and kill it with kill <process-id> or by typing killall xdm. that should
make it. If you use a different runlevel with xdm and without, you can
change that by typing init <runlevel> being root.
Hope that helped
