Eh.. I should know better than not giving enough info... :)  

  It is Motorola AIX 4.2.1 on a Powerstack box.  We tried first booting from CD (As this keyswitch only has on and off) but it didn't boot from the CD,  I am looking at other options to make it boot from the CD, I will repost if I get it done.  Otherwise anything else you can think of feel free to let me know.


 Previous question:

  I am a Sysadmin on SCO but we have a few AIX boxes we support.  Recently a customer placed an ODBC startup driver into the RC script, which now causes the box to hang on boot.  I am looking for the way to boot to single user mode and remove this line from the script.  I am doing this remotely and I have never physically sen an AIX box boot up. Any help appreciated
