Kernel Panic....SELinux policy.

Hi Everyone,

I am using RHEL 5.4 in VMware. Recently i have made changes in /etc/sysconfig/selinux and made it to be in "enforcing mode"...

Now when i rebooted my system, It is showing the following error:
"Unable to load SELinux Policy. machine is in enforcing mode.
Kernel panic- not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"

What to do??
Please help me out...!!

Try booting into single user mode:

Then see if you can edit the selinux file and put it back to the way it was before.
