FC4 Rescue CD
FC4 install CD using the rescue mode (see opening screen)
Any Live CD Distro (Ubuntu, for example, do a "sudo -s" from the terminal).
Editing the "Kernel" line in Grub adding a 1 may well not load the mods.

Most rescue modes have the HD mounted and vi works for an editor.

There is alaways:

mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /newMadeIDirectory

to mount an ext3 partition on hda1 on a directory you newly made with "mkdir

Have fun!


BTW - same boat - making a new kernel today probably.
