LILO Keytable read/checksum error

So upgraded -current today and managed to really screw things up...

Initially I was having problems with glibc since I'm running multilib so instead of researching I ran slackpkg to upgrade the kernel (yes, I am an idiot) and I guess the glibc problem caused lilo to not run properly... I was able to use AlienBob's glibc to update glibc to 2.17 but now when I try to boot I get this lilo error. How do I use my rescue disk to fix this if possible without reinstalling from scratch? I've tried using "huge.s /dev/sdb1 readinit= ro" but it errors out
