rescue disk...HELP ME!!! I'm DYING!!!!!!

Well, I'm not really dying, but my laptop is.  By accident I set the network adapter to pcmcia, and now, when I try to boot, I get a kernel panic, and it won't boot.  I don't know how to use the rescue disk, so I don't turn on network support.  Any help would be great.  Also, if you could just send the answer here to mailto:humej@home.com, it would be much appreciated.  thanks!

Boot with
LILO boot: linux single
Check your network configuration
with for example netconf or linuxconf

check your modules in /etc/conf.modules
(remove the pcmcia part temporary
afther making a backup of that file)
And reboot.


Or use a recue disk , (mount your rootsystem
if nessesairy :
# fdisk -l //to find your root partition
# mkdir /mnt/root
# mount /dev/hdxy /mnt/root
# cd /mnt/root
# /usr/bin/...

Sweet, thanks!  I just tried this(didn't read email until now):

'BOOT: linux init=/bin/ash' and it booted me into a little ash shell, with no support.  Then I remounted filesystem with this: 'mount -n -o remount,rw /dev/hda1' and it worked fine.  As it turns out, it wasn't the network at all, it was the actual pcmcia drivers.  Do you know of any other ones???

Thanks!!!
