I've broken /boot/device.hints

I was trying to disable ACPI by editing device.hints, and left some
garbage at the start of the file. Now I find the kernel won't boot -
you get to the little Daemon flash page, and then kernel load goes on
and after the first line of boot, the star fails to spin.
I've got a spare copy of the root partition on /dev/ac1s1a but I can't
seem to boot from there.
This box is very unhappy with ACPI.
If I boot from floppies the emergency shell doesn't seem to include a
copy of mount, so I can't rectify the fault.
Is there an easy survival route?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
