Angry Messed up my rc.conf can't get into system to repair it


I was fine tuning my rc.conf settings and messed it up somehow. The machine then boots me to a shell,
but I can't access the file nor can I access an editor. Tried the "live" cd fixit mode got an editor (ee)
but still haven't been able to make it work. Any ideas out there?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Run mount -a to mount your root partition as read-write, then you'll be able to edit rc.conf.
