Generally, that's a little more difficult with current systems.  There 
are some problem areas with multiple NICs, but otherwise udev is just 
creating symlinks and managing permissions.  It shouldn't prevent a 
console login.  It's doubtful that a fsck problem is caused by udev.

In LFS, we've had the capabilty to step through the bootscripts 
interactively by setting IPROMPT=yes in /etc/sysconfig/rc.site since 
7.0.  I suppose we could add a capability to break out to bash.

I recommend gmail.  It's easy enough to use POP or IMAP with gmail and 
use whatever client you want. It's also free.
