*nix experts may have more, and better, options, but, if it were me, I'd try:
1) logging on via ssh / telnet from another local machine, su-ing to 
root, fixing problem, typing /sbin/reboot.


2) at lilo put -s after the name of the kernel you normally load 
(prob. linux -s, or similar), typing in the root password when it 
asks you to, fixing problem, typing /sbin/reboot. :)
