Is there a way of removing a service which is causing the sytem to halt at boot up?   In this case it is SMB services.   I cannot get into Linux to remove it from the boot list.

Sure, but first of all, is it really hung, or does it just wait for 8-17 minutes? (in which case you have a bad DNS / hosts setup?)

WHen the system boots and you get the LILO prompt, type

linux single

this will bring you up in single user mode and you can do pretty much whatever you want from there.

or you could use

linux init=/bin/bash

or use a bootfloppy

or if this is RH6.1 use the interactive bootup.

Your're right it is a bad DNS/host setup, and thanks for the advice.

Ah, it the problem is in name resolution it SHOUDL continue, after sitting there for a bunch of minutes. Also note that sendmail and other such service might behave the same way.

Then you havent set your system up correctly. In both redhat and slackware (aswell as debian i think) the "linux single" works.

Your're right they work.   But I'm learning!    In the end I made endless attempts at trying to fix this problem from linux single, but ended up reinstalling.   I'm told that is sometimes the quickest way at the beginning!
Many thanks
