Boot from a install CD - you can mount the drives at that point and either
continue untangling the server or copy off any config files you want to
save, and reinstall.  In terms of absolute time, it may be faster to just
start over if you don't have to do much reconfiguring.  (though be careful
to not put yourself in the same loop again...)
