Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes. The first entry is for Symmetric Multiprocessing (hence the `smp'). If your machine has only one processor (the likelycase) then this could confuse things.
I'm not familliar with RH 2.1 but I would start looking at the bootloader script[s] (lilo or grub) and edit
appropriately. If it's lilo, then edit `/etc/lilo.conf' and comment out the image block where you see
the line `label = "Red Hat Linux Advanced Server (2.4.9-e.3smp) Default"'
Of course you'll need to run lilo again for the changes to take effect:
Now the selection seems to be ok after editing grub.conf but there is another issue it asks for password which is not set and after that there is no progress. Seems display drivers are creating this issue. cicisbeo this issue was before this change and is still after that.
There is no issue with grub.conf as this behaviour is before this change as I already stated. I am able to login to the system but without graphical interface. There is no issue with login at command line but I have to use graphical xterm.
Pl let me know if still I am not clear.
Usually, you can start the X server via the command `startx' (also, do a `man X' to learn about calling the
server directly) If the X server enc ounters any problems it should report them on the console. These issues
are usually due to incorrect parameters in the file `/etx/X11/XF86Config . Also, if an instance of X is
already present (check with the `ps' command) then it will fail, having no available `display' because
`display 0:0' is already in use.
Hope this is of some help.
I'm not familiar with `linux rescue mode.' As for XF86Config you can do a man on that
and learn about it. Alternatively, read the config file itself -- it's pretty easy to figure out
because of good commenting.
Another thing, you may want to rebuild your kernel image, modules and reinstall both.
