booting up linux

Ok,  I had sound using my isapnp.conf file.  For some unknown reason it stopped booting due to a dma conflict.  It locks up on installing the sound module.  My rescue disks dont work.  if i use them i get a kernel panic error.  (Question) Is there a way to boot up in safe mode.  No modules or anything just the kernel?  I need to get into my isapnp.conf file.  So i can make nessesary adjustments.  thanks

Try booting up from installation CD/disk and choose upgrade, when your partition is mounted, switch console using ALT+F2 or ALT+F, you will get a shell, probable you can access your partiotion from there and modify the isapnp.conf file.
