Two options to resolve this come to mind:
1) At the boot prompt, type in the word "single" so as to boot into
single-user mode. This should keep various services from starting,
such as syslog, and you may be able to look around and determine
2) Use a rescue disk.
(2) is probably better, however, as you may be having trouble with
files in the /etc directory, such as /etc/pam.d.
Anyway, once you get in, try running e2fsck on your unmounted file
