Cool

Is it cast iron, white plastic PVC, or black plastic ABS?
If it's cast iron, you will have to support the pipe above and below to keep it from falling, cut it with a special tool, and install Fernco couplings (rubber boots with two large pipe-size hose clamps) and a section of PVC or ABS.
If it is PVC or ABS, just hacksaw it out, and glue in a new section using matching couplings above and below with either PVC or ABS glue, as necessary.
Look in the "Build/Remodel" and "Repair/Fix-It" sections above for illustrated how-to info.
Good Luck!
