Originally there was a error message the first time in the command prompt but i failed to copy it. It never appeared again.
I managed to boot into the last of three kernel options
antix at sda1, 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp
antix-mll 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp
antix-mll 2.6.36-1 mephis-smp(init3}
and into the graphical interface through startx. I got into synaptic package manager as root
but I can't SU in the terminal. I did an update and fixed broken packages but the same problem continues.
