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.

I know with RH you can go to interactive mode at some point by hitting "i". You have to do it at the right point, but it asks for confirmation for a lot of the services. You can try that if Mandrake can do that (I'm not sure. I don't run it but it is was initially based off of RH).
the reason there should be a simple way of pausing the boot process is because the log file contains much more information that might be necessary for me. If i want to know exactly what received the [FAILED] keyword during boot-up I should simply pause to read that sentence that received the [FAILED] and not go through a much longer log file that contains all the information regarding how the services were loaded etc.
