You boot the server from the CD/DVD, and repair whatever needs repairing.

If you want a more specific answer, you'll obviously have to provide some details regarding the nature of the problem.

you could boot with the liveCD and copy all the data content of your server to an external hard drive.

Other than that you have to be more specific on what is the problem you are having? what do you need to fix?

is it GRUB? is it your samba shares? what is the problem?

We definitely need to know what distro+version and ideally some idea of the actual grub issue.
What are the symptoms?
