Is there a way to skip the init process at the beggining?
I think there is a init script that is somehow corrupt, and, as you could imagine, the system doesn't load fully, so I can't log in. Taking the hd to another pc is not an option, since I have to ask for a special permission to do this. (burocracy). Neither to use a floppy or cd for booting it.
You do this either from the LILO or GRUB screen. Usually there is a command prompt on the screen that allows you to enter text. Select a kernel to boot from, and then enter the word single or the number 1 after the kernel name and hit enter. That should boot you into single mode, which avoids using most of the init scripts.
