I've never installed RedHat 6.2 so I'm just guessing here... what if you just press Enter, does anything happen?

You may also want to check RedHat's website for some installation instructions or troubleshooting.

Well, I have never had any reason to do a Interactive startup, but when are you hitting the "I", I always seem to see it pass by really fast. Might want to try just tapping the "I" before it even comes up to that part.
What is your reason to do the interactive startup anyways?

As per observation interactive startup should work just by pressing 'I' at the startup.

But it is not different from using 'ntsysv' command at the command prompt. With the 'Interactive' option you can enable/disable daemons at the startup.

If you are not getting interactive mode, you can try 'ntsysv' instead.

(It is available script in RedHat releases, presuming it is available across other distributions too.)
