I can boot to single user and see that all my partitions are there and the data is there. my passwd file has the shell at the end of the entries.
can anyone help, thanks
Are you trying to login as root in fedora 10 ?
Root login is standard disable in Fedora 10
If you still wish to login as root in fedora 10 there are several threads explaining how to do so.Search for it
Even so login as root is not recommended.
