There's some chance he could do this from the DVD, if he can Ctrl+Alt+F1 and 
if there's enough there to log into a useful shell (instead of busybox).  
From there try to

/etc/init.d/kdm stop

to keep the X server from respawning (the blue black blue black blue) and then 
try to edit the conf file.

It *might* be possible, but it's dicey.  Remember, he's having trouble with 
the installation DVD, not a running distro on a hard drive.
