I assume you mean you want to continue booting the system as you normally would if you had booted in regular multiuser mode. If that is the case, you would issue this command (after doing your manual passwd changes or fsck maintenence, etc.):
/sbin/mount -wu /"
/etc/rc
/sbin/SystemStarter

This will mount your main boot volume (/) filesystem as read/write, then start necessary system services like networking, NetInfo, etc. (For more about the OS X boot process, see this link: http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx...alization.html)

If you're worried about someone gaining physical access to your Mac and hacking in or causing irrepairable damage, I recommend disabling sngle user mode altogether. More about the security implications can be found here:
