you say please, you say thankyou, you don't type in capital letters and you actually tell us what's happening after you catch your breath. is your system booting correctly? are all your filesystems mounted ok? can you read /var/log/messages for any errors? does your root user look ok in /etc/passwd? have you left services exposed to the internet allowing crackers to get in?
