error on shutdown -r

I am getting an odd message:

RS/6000, with an Ibm 3151 terminal

error is

INIT: Command is respawning to rapidly.  Check for possible errors
id: pick1 "ap-n pick0 1 -T TTY2"

I also ran the error report from smit and am getting 500+ pages of the same error

identifier   timestamp  T  C Resource_Name   Description
9D30B78E  (this changes)T  S TTY2            Receiver over-run on input

init is trying to start a process (on TTY2?), but it keeps dying. The entry in /etc/inittab will be set to "respawn", i.e. restart the process if it dies, but if it dies too often, init will give up and report this error.

Check /etc/inittab to find out what the process is (ap-n?) and then find out why it is failing; It's not a problem within AIX, just a warning.

basic question.
when you say check /etc/inittab  
How, through smit?

It's a text file, so cat/more/pg are OK to just read it...

Thanks for the help.  It was the host terminal for the server and our production software "Pick".
