Can't reboot RHEL WS4 - swap space issue?
I have Dell Precision 380 with Red Hat Enterprise Linux v4 for EM64T 64 bit system. I tried to load a very big file into a MySQL table (which never finished) and the system got really sluggish. Now when I try to reboot, the system hangs after "Enabling swap space". If I try to reboot from installation CD, it can't find the hard disk. I found a Dell advice to download new drivers from their site and install them from a floppy - but my system doesn't have a floppy.
Even though I still have some time on my Red Hat support, Red Hat and Dell are of no help. I'm considering installing Fedora Core (which seems to be finding my hard disk), but then I'll loose a week of work.
Would anybody please have some advice on how to get back into my system?
