IMHO nobody should be without a live CD such as Knoppix or Mepis or DSL
or... See http://www.frozentech.com/content/livecd.php for a more
complete list.

Download one and boot from that.  Then mount the partition on which your
root filesystem is located and copy what you need, do any
necessary configuration (chroot into the mount if necessary).
