Problem booting CentOS 4

Post by omara007 » 2008/01/01 11:38:07

Hi folks

I am having some problems booting my CentOS 4.6 (kernel is 2.6.9-11). The problem started after I played with the wireless driver (ipw2200) .. I made some changes to the network settings .. and now the NetworkManager hangs when I boot .. I tried to enter the Interactive booting to disable it .. but unfortunately it's not working with me when I press "I" once prompted for interactive booting !! .. dunno why !
Anyhow .. I tried to install some small bootable linux on my USB drive and it boots beautifully ..yet, I don't know what to be done in order to see my original CentOS partitions !!
Anyone has a clue ?
