RHEL5 Virtual Machine Will Not Go To Boot Prompt?

VMware Fusion
RHEL5 Server

After messing about with a vm I need to go into rescue mode and fix the problem
I have tried all settings in the CD/DVD window and cannot get a boot prompt
Just goes straight to grub

I only used the rescue mode on a 'real' host before and had no problem
I'm wondering is there something about a vm I dont know about
In this situation

Hmm. I'm not sure that VMWare Fusion will allow you to boot into a CD or something like that. However, you can access the BIOS settings using this idea: and then you can look at boot settings... Hope that helps!
