system boot hangs after installing kernel-ntfs


Hi, I've installed the kernel-ntfs for 2.6.7-1.494.2.2, which I discover later from the Linux-ntfs web page was broken. The problem is that my system do not boot up again, and It hangs unfortunately. The problem will be easy to fix if I would be able to boot the system (by the way FC2).
Is there any possibility to tell at grub prompt to boot the system without any external mount? To tell the truth, the boot of NTFS partition is written on /etc/fstab in the usual way.
Any suggestion? As I have no floppy on my computer I've any recovery disk....:-(((
I'm open to any suggestion
thank you in advance

when u see grub menu, press "e" then choose
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.x-xx ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
and again press "e" . add "sigle" word at the end of line (after quiet).
then press "b" to boot to single mod (runlevel 1).

also u can boot with fedora first CD in rescue mod (linux rescue). so u can reach your filesystem.
