	It can, of course, and has several times. That's how I know that 
such things can save me. What I was trying to say was that it couldn't 
hurt to have another way also available.

	Of course, it can save me only to the extent I can manage, or 
find out how to manage, with CLI only. 

	What I really need, when such things happen, is probably a 
mythical beast -- something that would let me use the GUI interface on an 
intact machine to find my way around one that runs but can't launch its 
own GUI .... <sigh>
