Re: How to choose safe configuration at boot time?

to boot in single-user mode, add the word "single" or the word "emergency"
to the end of the boot command line. It should look like this:

	boot: linux emergency

"single" boots single-user with all daemons running. "emergency" just runs
the shell.


I have just obsoleted that Slackware rescue disk. The next boot floppies
package has a one floppy combined installation root/boot disk that contains
fsck and other rescue tools.
