when the system boot up, at the grub screen press "e"
arrow down to something like Kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/
to high light it. press "e" again
you will see grub edit> kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20.6 ro root=LABEL=/

type "space" (this is important) then "s" or "1" for single user mode

then "enter"

when you go back to the screen before you will see
the line with Kernel..... root=LABEL=/ s (or 1)

Press "b" to boot it

that is all you need to boot into single user mood

good luck
