Single user mode - GRUB

Booting Single-User Mode

You may be able to boot single-user mode directly. If your system
boots, but does not allow you to log in when it has completed booting,
try single-user mode.

If you are using GRUB, use the following steps to boot into
single-user mode:

  1. If you have a GRUB password configured, type p
    and enter the password.

  2. Select Red Hat Linux with the version of the kernel
    that you wish to boot and type e for edit. You
    will be presented with a list of items in the configuration file
    for the title you just selected.

  3. Select the line that starts with
    kernel and type
    e to edit the line.

  4. Go to the end of the line and type single
    as a separate word (press the [Spacebar] and then
    type single). Press [Enter]
    to exit edit mode.

  5. Back at the GRUB screen, type b to boot into
    single user mode.
