I was adviced to boot linux in single user mode, and run fsck.
So I popped in my FC6 rescue disk.
At the prompt, I typed "linux single".
The system then simply goes straight into trying to install linux.
How do I get the command prompt in Single user mode?
To get into linux to be able to fix problems you
Boot to the CD/DVD
Type linux rescue
Go through the basic setup settings
Mount File system at the command line by typing : chroot /mnt/sysimage
Reboot system using the command : shutdown -r now
( or use [ Alt-Control-Delete ]
