I had to do this once, damn filesystem curroptoion totally screwed the
system. I looked for such a feature but could not find one. So I booted
the install cd and got a shell on that to do the work I needed. At least
when booting software 1, it defaults to an X installation, you can click
on the desktop(right click or left I forget), and get a terminal.

I ended up reinstalling my system even though the above procedure worked
because the curroption was very wide spread.
