problem with autostart


Hi all,

I've got a somehow stupid problem.

I wrote a shell-script that contains an infinite loop.
Then I put that script into the "rc2.d" - directory in order to autostart the script on bootup.
Now, the problem is that I can't stop the script and therefore can't logon.

How can I prevent the script from executing or is it possible to end the script with any key-combination?

Don't put in in the rc2.d folder or change the Sxx into something different

ctrl - c should do it

solved problem with rescue-disk.
I think there's no other workaround possible as Ctrl - C doesn't work.
