Question INIT: Id "s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes


I just got Gentoo base system installed yestarday and after shuting down and then rebooting about an hour ago I'm faced with:
Code:
INIT: Id "s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "s1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
I found http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t...7-start-0.html and http://www.gossamer-threads.com/list...embedded/53471 but nothing that seems to help with how to correct this issue.

I tried the following and as you can see:
Code:
Last login: Sun Jun 10 15:47:48 MDT 2012 on tty1
dragon ~ # cd /sbin/agetty 
-bash: cd: /sbin/agetty: Not a directory
dragon ~ # nano -w /sbin/agetty 
dragon ~ # s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L 9600 ttyS0 ansi 
-bash: s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty: No such file or directory
dragon ~ # find inittab
find: `inittab': No such file or directory
dragon ~ # find Inittab
find: `Inittab': No such file or directory
Any ideas as to how to correct this without having to start from scratch again and before I move forward with installing the rest of the system?

Are you trying to feed dumb serial terminals?

If not then comment out those 2 lines as you don't need them.

And its "/etc/inittab"

Thank you, so far that seems to be working but I'll need to give it alittle more time just to be sure.
