Exclamation Seti@Home has taken over

I changed my rc.local script to include a line that would automatically start SETI at startup...included the &, the >/dev/null, etc.

Now, when I boot up, it starts SETI alright, but I can't get to a usable prompt. <CTRL>+<ALT>+<F#> doesn't work. <CRTL>+C does NOT kill the process. I can't SSH to the box. I can't use a boot disk to change the rc.local file. About the only thing I can do is restart, and watch it happen all over again.

Any ideas???

OK guys, call off the dogs...I put in a init=/bin/sh argument at the LILO prompt, got BASH up and running, remounted the filesystem as RW, and edited the file. Now i am happily up and running again.
