Were you in a single user mode?If you don't know how to get there,here's how;
In GRUB, hit 'e", then select the "kernel" line, hit "e" again,press space and add " single" (or just " 1") to the end of the line. Press ENTER, and then "b" to boot. (Newer version of grub uses "a" to append to the boot line).Post if you still don't see anything after this.You should be presented with the login prompt.
