Boot with resque system (root). Then just mount the root file system
from the HDD, and edit the file:

# mount /dev/sdXY /mnt
# cd /mnt/etc
....

Where sdX is the HDD (usually its sda), and Y is the partition nr of
your root partition.

You can look at what partitions are on the disk(s) with:

fdisk -l
