sure thing -- one thing that i forgot to mention is that (with a
non-panicked system) you can always boot to single user mode and start
running the startup scripts by hand (you can do this because if the
system ain't panicked, the problem is almost certainly during the
initscripts.  errors before init does its thing are usually pretty

although the shift-pageup is much less time consuming.   :-)
