    Default HELP: SCO OS5 System crashes just before "press ctrl D..." message

    Hi;

    I must start by sayng i am not an expert on Unix.
    But there's no one else for many Km arround and i need to fix this.
    It's on an SCO OpenServer 5.0.2.
    The HD is SCI on AHA 2940UW.
    There is also a Iomega Jazz 1Gb on that AHA.

    After pressing enter on the 'boot:' prompt the system starts,
    shows a table with several devices and right after that it goes PANIC.

    The person who has this machine called me once for something similar to
    this and that time it was that he left the JAZ on 'auto-mount' but the
    Jaz disk was not in the drive when he started the system. Puting the
    Jaz disk in before turning on the PC solved it. I then removed the
    'auto-mount' on this filesystem. He puted it back >(
    But now it cant be it because the disk is inside and i tested it on
    another machine and it is ok.
    Anyway i just need to get to a directory and copy some files, but
    how can i boot this machine only to get to the root and avoid it to
    mount any other filesystems, like the jaz?

    Any help is greatly apriciated. Sorry for my bad english. :)

    Post the output of the PANIC message - that will give some hints.

    What type of filesystem is on the Jazz disk?

    The jaz ( not jazz :) ) has a DOS fs.

    Now don't ask me what i did, but this time the system started checking
    the FS, reported some errors, corrected some, but it went all the way to
    login.

    Only thing i remember diferent is just pressing enter instead of
    answering Y/N on the questions about the memory dump.

    I'm realy confused now.........
