If you have a laptop without a floppy drive then the only chance,
IINM, for starting a rescue mode is either an installation CD or a
*working* single user mode as described elsewhere in his thread. If
you don't have either of them I'd either try get another working Linux
distro *or* ask Ubuntu folks how they manage rescue situations.

Every good Operating System has a way to rescue an installed system:
This is especially important if you dual-boot Linux/OSX. But sooner or
later anyone will forget a root password, hose a kernel, whatever
... So rescue mode is vital for anyone using an Operating System, no
matter whether it's Windows, OSX, or whatever ...

But actually I still hope this is all not true ... :)

ppc Knoppix? 

Good luck
