It looks as if your keyboard mapping is screwy.

What type of keyboard do you have? - number of keys, langauge/layout
What do you have in xorg.conf or XF86Conf for the keyboard entry?

Unable to access the conf file? how do you mean? You cannot find, or you cannot open?
Can you boot to runlevel 3 (basic command line) - often called "Failsafe" at the GRUB/LILO boot option screen, and login as root?
