Google assumes you can first boot in and then do things as root.
If you type "Linux init=/bin/sh" at the LILO prompt, does this let you
boot and log in as root? That should skip the loading of the daemons
(and of a lot of other things).
If you're not getting a LILO prompt on bootup (just a LILO 22.x message
and then straight into booting), then I believe you should press "Tab" a
few times when the LILO message appears.
Alternatively, boot from a rescue disk. Almost every Linux install CD
doubles as a rescue disk.
