Description Jeff Largent 2000-08-15 17:14:21 EDT
On boot if a drive has to many errors to fix, you are prompted for
root password to fix drive or Ctrl-D for regular boot.
If you enter root passwd the system reboots as if you had entered
CTRL-D.  Resulting in still having a drive with to many errors, and
the same prompt with no way to fix.  Slackware rescue disk scores 
another save.
