Problems starting up 6.1
I had to shutdown my system. Now when I reboot it hands either when initializing the system logger, or initializing sendmail.

I've managed to get it up and running one, after about an hour of work and I can't do anything before the system crashsed.

I can't find my rescue disk either

Any idea comment or suggestion?
How do I get my stuff out of the system?
Can I use the CD to repair the system?
If I have to reinstall the system, will all the additional stuff that I've installed be lost?

:mad:thanks and sorry if this is not the right post

Have you tried booting into single user mode? You can do this by typing "linux single" at the LILO prompt. If that does not work you can download a boot disk from

Specific system
I'm running Redhat 6.1, not slackware.

Thought I had said that in my posting.

You did say that you were running Red Hat, but in this case it doesn't matter. That boot disk will work fine. In fact the last time I used a Red Hat disk that was labeled "boot disk" it wasn't even a boot disk, it was an install disk ;)
