Ack, it's really stuck. How can I pass an option to the kernel with grub to tell it to enter runlevel 1?
Nevermind, I figured out the runlevel stuff. Man it's so nice to be somewhat fluent in linux!!
Couldn't have done it all without you guys.
So any ideas on making the server autoboot? Perhaps inetd? I'm not sure how to do that either, I just keep hearing about it.
