I remember doing this and went back and did it again just for s & g.

Looking more closely at the boot messages I see that it is having some 

Freeing unused kernel memory: 60k freed

INIT: /etc/inittab[5]: missing process field

(none) login:

I did a Ctrl-Alt-Del and got a bunch of messages. Various things are 
returning a value of 127.

For example:
.. . . subscript /etc/rc6.d/S80sendsignals exited with a return value of 127 
for an unknown reason. . .

It gives a message of there being no file or directory 
/etc/rc6.d/S80sendsignals yet there is a symlink there pointing to a file 
in ../init.d

Oh, I am getting confused. I think there may be some info that scrolls off 
the screen before I can spot it. Is there a log? Failing that what/where 
should I start looking?

Ah, I have a pounding headache. I am going to run some errands and come 
back to this in an hour or so.
I think, therefore, ken_i_m
