The information (and software) you need for dealing with this problem should
be available at:
If you get into a completely non-functional state you can get back to the
OF defaults by restting the PRAM (Option-Command-P-R). If that fails, the worst
case is having to unnplug the machine and remove the motherboard's battery for
5-10 minutes, which will also reset the PRAM.
Dealing with this stuff the first couple of times wasn't pretty for me either.
