What are the errors?  If there are filesystem problems you probably need to follow the prompts to login as single user mode, then manually run fsck -Y to fix the issues.

So enter the root password, it will put you to single user mode.

Then run:

fsck -Y /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00


When finished, use CTRL-D to logout, and continue booting.

Sometimes there are so many inconsistencies due to a power outage or crash, that fsck wont fix them automatically. Best to shutdown with CTRL-ALT-DEL or shutdown command, rather than hitting the power button. :)

Cheers.
