Sure it's possible. Boot into single user, as you did before, then
fsck and mount all the partitions on your machine:
# fsck -p
# mount -a
You should now be able to edit /etc/ttys, although just copying in a default
one from /usr/src/etc/etc_i386/ttys (assuming you're on an IA32 machine)
might be easier.
