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.
