Hi All,

How to initiate a file installation repair of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 x64 from the DVD rom drive ?

my problem is that i can only do it from single mode login since the run level 5 is always prompting me for login name loop.

Thanks.

1. Boot from the cd/dvd media
2. type 'linux rescue' and [enter] at the boot: prompt
3. don't bother with networking config
3. allow the search for existing linux installs
4. when you have a bash prompt type 'chroot /mnt/sysimage'
5. type 'passwd'
6. enter new root password twice
7. exit
8. reboot
