    linux wont pass bootup

    I messed up with my system init files.
    Now linux boot and jams at:
    Init: Id 1: Id 1 respawning too fast --disabled for 5 mins
    Init: Id 2: Id 2 respawning too fast --disabled for 5 mins
    Init: Id 3: Id 3 respawning too fast --disabled for 5 mins
    Init: Id 6: Id 6 respawning too fast --disabled for 5 mins
    ....no filesystems mounted.

    And it would not pass that step.
    I did access my system with "linux init=/bin/bash" but there`s
    no way I can correct my system init files xuase they
    are read-only, even after I tried "mount -wno remount /" or
    "mount -wno remount /dev/hda1 /".
    Mount complains with error "cannot mount specified file system"

    If SkyNet's suggestion doesn't work, you might try a LiveCD distro to mount your hard drive and make the necessary changes. Some nice ones include:
    Lnx-BBC
    Knoppix
    DamnSmall
    Slackware Live

    If you can't boot from CD, or those won't work due to memory constraints, try tomsrtbt disk (floppy distro) instead.

    Hope this helps. Good luck and keep us informed.
