Description of problem:
The only file system being mounted is / as shown by df. It is
mounted read-only. Although df does not show other file systems
mounted, the files are there and those directories CAN be written
into. Ex. in /usr I can create a file using "touch /usr/junk".
We found a file "/halt" of 0 length in the root "/" filesystem. We
booted into rescue mode using the install CD, removed the /halt file
and rebooted. The system came up ok and performed a fsck on all
filesystem. This check showed no errors. Everything appeared to be
working properly. We later rebooted and are now back to our original
problem, "/" read-only and a /halt file in root "/" filesystem, date
of last shutdown and 0 length.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
What errors do you get on bootup when it comes up in this state?
Is your initrd made correctly?
I have another system that is setup the same way and it is working
ok. This system was functioning ok until late last week. The change
that was made then was to change the setup on some additional disks
that are not on /dev/sda.
Again, what specific errors do you get on boot?
Closing, no response.
