    If you have access to another mac,

    You should at least back up your data. I've been able to use Target firewire mode on 1 computer where the hard drive was failing, when the computer wouldn't boot from the drive. We were able to back up all the data before replacing the drive. I don't know what the problem you're having is, but I'd at least do my best to back up the data. You could also try booting from an external drive that has OS X on it, if you have one. Then you could copy the data to the same drive.
