You could try this: http://uneasysilence.com/archive/2007/07/11458/
or just format and reinstall which is what I would recommend if you have the install disks. Be warned, the first method I mentioned, I've not done it so I don't guarantee it'll work, but I've got a moderate amount of linux experience and it looks like it should work to me.
