If you configured your boot loader to have a prompt, then before booting
give the kernel the string "init=/bin/bash" and this will boot into a
bash shell where you can fix things.

Or use your install CD as a rescue disk by boot it up to the point were
you can go to it's prompt (ALT-F2 I think) and mount your drive,
possible chroot into it, ect... and fix it.

Make it a great day
