Can Grub bypass menu.lst when it contains an error?

I added a splashscreen to grub, but had a typo in the device: (hd1,0)
instead of (hd0,0).

This caused grub to continue to cycle upon boot (I guess trying to
read the non-existent drive) before the boot menu is shown.  I
couldn't see how to get grub to just ignore menu.lst on boot and give
me a grub prompt -- for example, by holding down a special key

Did I miss something obvious in the docs?
