You can certainly grab the logs from a live CD.  Just mount your root
partition and find the appropriate directory there.

As for fixing it, if you really can't get a prompt (see my other email),
you may be able to do the same thing after using chroot to set the
apparent root directory.  You'll have to do some reading on how chroot
works, unless someone else is more familiar with this (SamGee? Karl?) can
give you detailed instructions.  I only have a bare trifle of experience
from trying to debootstrap a system once.
