you can boot the install-cd and type the input : bare.i mount root=.....etc..... as suggested on
the screen.
then you can edit the file...

Also

you can type linux 3 at the boot. (In Lilo, hit ESC when it gives you the choice window, then it will give you boot: type linux 3 which goes to a higher level but still CLI.
