Help to remove script from booting sequence

Hello, All
I had a script called "mac", which I wanted to execute during boot sequence.
So, I put it into /etc/init.d and ran:

update_rc.d mac -99

Now it really runs during boot sequence but I cannot login from any
terminal, the system does not reboot from CTRL-ALT-DEL, is not telneted and I can do nothing, even cannot remove the ill script.
Could somebody advise how to restore it or give some reference to
appropriate document?
Thanks, Alex.

I would suggest you boot from a live cd/rescue floppy and remove the script that way.
