i had recently installed "magicdev" via apt-get, so the malformed magic

This might be the result of a malformed magic line.
if you can boot with standalone cdrom or floppy
boot: linux root=/dev/hda1 1
boot: linux init=/bin/bash
than try: sh /etc/rcS.D/S70xfree86-common
if it works, than you probably mixed and matched unix vs dos cr/lf
- you ned to strip \r from that file
when passing linux root=/dev/hda1 to the boot: prompt from a CD
(gnoppix), this gave me the same /bin/sh permission denied errors and a
bunch of "kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k net-pf-1, errno = 13
when i pass "linux init=/bin/bash" to the boot prompt it gave me a
kernel panic which complained about no valid root partition and locked
the machine. Thinking that I just needed to append the root= line, I
passed "linux init=/bin/bash root=/dev/hda1" to the boot prompt. this
gave me a # prompt, but running /etc/init.d/rcS gives me a bunch of
"can't load modules" error (because it's running the gnoppix kernel, i'm
guessing) as well as the same old the permission denied errors. I am
getting these "permission denied" errors on EVERYTHING that rcS calls --
not just that /etc/rcS.D/S70xfree86-common file above; i'm getting at
least two pages of similar error output.
how/where can I find more info bad magic errors?
which file do i need to strip \r from?
