Philip Blundell was overheard whispering ...

# If you _do_ manage to break init and are unable to boot your system, it's
# worth knowing that if you take init away altogether the kernel will just
# run a shell for you.

Or if you can get to a lilo prompt, you can also add a "init=/bin/sh"
for a shell.
