With a live CD: when you see the symbols at the bottom of the display, 
press a key, to get the menu choices, choose language, then
use F6 for more options,
which reveals a boot command line
at the end, add the string
(space before and space following)
and then boot

This worked for me because the b43 was not included (kernel??) and is 
now not expected.
I later installed, and using a wired ethernet, it was easy to use the 
ubuntu software centre to get the b43 wireless drivers firmware whatever.

I had this prob with an inspiron1300 laptop
the blacklist is not difficult, though a tad inconvenient:
