You could also boot with "linux init=/bin/sh", and run these commands
when the prompt appears:

# mount / -o remount,rw
# mv /etc/inittab.real /etc/inittab
# mount / -o remount,ro

Then powercycle the machine. Afterwards, you'll have to edit the
/etc/apr/sources.list file manually then run apt-get, tasksel or dselect.
