    linux init=/bin/sh
    then go in, remount / read-write with:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    then mount /proc with:
    mount /proc
    then go through, edit the file that calls that function, and comment it out.

    the first one yes, then it will drop you to a command line. From there use pico to edit the file(s) that are needed.
