How To Boot Into Single User Mode
During your LILO startup where it pauses for 5 or 30 seconds, at the
boot: prompt, if you type
image_name 1, the boot will continue but you will be in Single User Mode.
- EXAMPLE: On my dual boot system, my Linux image is named "Linux" and my Windows image is named "windoz". To boot into single user mode, at the
boot:prompt I would type:
boot: linux 1
TIP: If you did not install your system with a pause, you should really run liloconfig and put at least a 5 second pause in. Sometimes it's useful.
