You did not say, but I guess you are using the 8.10 desktop cd
(LiveCD)? If you hit F1, then hilight F4 and hit enter, it tells you
"there is no dedicated rescue mode on this cd, but you can use this
live cd to rescue the broken system". 

Also, if you get a GRUB loading.... message on the install, hit ESC and
then use recovery mode option to try to fix your system.

Good luck,
