Is there a way to halt the boot sequence on Fedora 9


I spit this question out of my larger problem to get more methodical. Maybe someone knows the answer to this question:

Upon boot my Apache server complains that it can not bind to the IP address. I think it says the network resource is in use but it has a lot of other text and it is only up for 2 seconds and I haven't been able to read it. I think I need to read that message.

Q:
Is there a way to halt the boot sequence on Fedora 9 so I can read the Apache boot message splashed on the screen? You know, the black screen page where the things that are OK get a green: [OK] and the ones that are not get [ERROR]

Once you reach a command prompt you can use the dmesg command to view the output of the kernel. This will show all messages from bootup as well as any new messages. You will want to pipe it to less / more so that you can scroll back and forth.

I read what is there from the dmesg and it is all hardware related driver loads. There is nothing from the boot of the Apache Server. I still can't find the text shown on the sceen at boot time.

Those messages come from the initscripts, and need to be captured specifically - Redhat/Fedora used to use initlog.
If you have some time read this (unlikely to make your mood better).

What the Apache boot message said:

Here is the massage that I see at boot but didn't have time to read. I am trying to start the Apache server and it thinks that the socket is in use. As far as I can tell there is nothing else on the socket. So now that I have this I'm going to start a new thread about the Apache Server.


[/etc/httpd/conf.d]$/etc/init.d/httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.1.100:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down


[/etc/httpd/conf.d]$/etc/init.d/httpd start
Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.1.100:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
