Ah - that is the problem - you are not booting into the rescue mode.
You are booting the same way as if you had booted from the hard
drive. Try entering "linux rescue" at the Grub prompt. (I normally
the DVD image or the boot image off the DVD, so there may be an
extra step when using the Live CD to get the Grub prompt, or a
rescue option on the Grub menu.)
