Using screen on Mac OS X, I want to know how to go to the beginning/end of the line.

Usually I use ^ + A / ^ + E on terminal , but that doesn't work for screen.

Ctrl+a is screen's default escape sequence. So, if you want to actually pass it through to something running inside screen you need to use Ctrl+aa. Ctrl+e should work fine as that's nothing screen captures.
