installed wrong kext, cannot even boot single user mode

I think I did something really stupid.. to make my thinkpad PCMCIA slot working, I installed TI.PCMCIA.1510.FIX.zip, which basically patched these three kext




but then after reboot, the boot GUI screen shows a spinning waiting icon and hangs, and I switched to -v -s to enter single user mode, but it seems already too late, all the kext were loaded and the console hangs at the message "starting processor 1"


so what can I do at this point to get back to the file system level and restore the original kext, can I boot with an OSX CD in console mode and then touches files from there?


Thanks for your help!! I tried to search "single user mode" but cannot get too much help here.
