no login for root

i've made a mistake. i changed my login shell to tcsh in the passwd file without checking where the tcsh resides. i thought it would be the same as the default sh which is in /bin. now i am unable to login as the system say "cannot execute /bin/tcsh. no such file or directory". then the login prompt is showed up again. help is much appreciated.

boot your system. at LILO prompt please type 'linux single'.
you can be root again and can change login shell.
