boot hangs after loading proftpd

I have a slack 8 system that boots fine until it loads proftpd afterwhich it hangs. I suspect it's because my domain name has changed since I last rebooted but I can't figure out how to get past this problem on boot to get to shell and stop it from loading again.

proftpd issue...

You could boot into Slackware using a Slackware boot disk...then mount your existing system and disable ProFTPd startup?

Just a thought..boot disk images are available on many Slackware could even use your install CD if you still have it.

I'm new at this...but it's what I would try.

Since I initially built this box as a firewall/router to run ipchains/tables and a traffic monitor I cooked up with a pearl script, it is only a mainboard and a harddrive and nothing else. I realized that sshd loads before proftpd so I ssh'd to the box via ethernet and commented out the loading of proftpd at boot.
