Try booting with:

  rescue root=/dev/hda1 single

That may get you a prompt for the root password, and the shell, before
you get to the broken code.

Otherwise, boot with:

  rescue root=/dev/hda1 init=/bin/bash

That will allow you to make the changes you need, but requires that you
remount root as read/write, and sync manually, before you reboot.

If you are not sure of how to manage that then you probably don't want
to fuss with that method; it kind of depends on knowing Unix will

C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot.
C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg.
