Sorry, I forgot to tell you that I created boot disk and ran it.  I typed "rescue", I still show the same messages. (I just started to use Linux)

That's not the kind of boot disk you use to boot linux on the hard drive. When you install it asks you if you want to make a boot disk. That disk is to boot the partition on your hard drive. Using the disk your talking about it can be done, but if your a newbe reinstall is what I suggest. If you reinstall, make a bootdisk when it asks you.

the error itself sounds like you just need to specify run level at boot to the kernel. Assume you are using LILO, at LILO prompt, type:
linux single[enter]
to get into single user mode.
If things were worse, you can say:
linux init=/bin/sh[enter]
to avoid most part of init process and just try to get a shell on the console

I use GRUB so i would open grub.conf it may be lilo.conf if you use LILO. And where it says

linux int=/boot/something.img
change to
linux init=/sbin/init
