Deleted Login Program? (I think)

Pretty sure I goofed up fairly bad. I was uninstalling some unneeded software through the command line, accidentally threw in a wildcard modifer when specifying the package, and now I don't have the ability to login. I'm assuming the package that handled logging into the system is gone, though I don't really know. I attempted a reinstall off of a live USB, but for whatever reason, my netbook won't boot from it, even after changing the boot order in the BIOS. It says "Reinsert media with valid live image" or something similar, I'd have to look again.

My question is, how can I either make my live USB work to reinstall, or how can I access say, the command line or something to repair my damage? If the latter solution is proposed, which commands should I use? I'm rather unfamiliar with the inner workings of a Linux kernel and how to fix things.

Any help would be great, thanks.
