Unhappy error on login and startup


hi there,
I have fedora 10 installed on vmware, running on win7. today when I try to start up fedora, after logging in, I faced this error: Oops! sealert hit an error! ..... there is no space left on device..... could not attach t desktop process...
when I click "ok" button I just can see a black page and a mouse cursur circling forever..
I really need to work with my fedora beacause i dont have any backup of my files ...
btw, I allocated 8g hard disk to my machine on vmware. I don't have any idea how to boot and login from a console not a gui...
plz help me solve this problem, a.s.a possible.
thnx.

First, we volunteer our time here...don't tell us to hurry up. This isn't a rush for ANYONE here but you. Second, spell out your words.

The error "no space left on device" is pretty clear. Your disk is full. You can try to boot to text mode, by typing in "3" in your boot options, or you can boot via CD/DVD into 'rescue' mode, mounting your Linux drive manually, then removing files until you get some space freed up.
