Boot-Up Issues

My RH9 installation with the latest kernel has stopped booting after I changed my lilo.conf file and ran sbin/lilo. It goes to run level 9 when it should go to 5. Anybody know what the problem is?

What do you mean runlevel 9, AFAIK there is no such thing. I am unaware of anything that would change your runlevel by editing your lilo.conf file. Usually to change your runlevel would require you to change your /etc/inittab file.

More details please.
