well at the kde login screen, i can choose a failsafe session.
or when grub boots up, i can hit esc and then go to (recovery).
right now im trying to figure out how to mount my encrypted /dev/sda5 in backtrack 3 livecd or knoppix livecd to copy data off the drive and go from there.
can only do so much with a few hours a night to tinker.
