So far, I didn't have to. Back in the SuSE days I once killed libc. That
was a trip to Bern and a long evening. I only had a RHat CD at hand, so

The next bigger case was the complete reinstallation of the system. This
was done remote with installing Debian onto another partition and then 
booting into that, again without problems.
