:-)  Well, I should have said "single-user ... or a LiveCD" - whatever 
works.  The single-user mode is simplest for something like that, but many 
times it's more useful to be able to get into a GUI environment.  There's 
more than one way to skin any cat in Linux (which is a little hard on the 
cats, but I digress).
