Description Mark Mellin 2000-10-09 21:44:41 EDT
On booting, after "Enabling Swap Space" (which returns as [OK]), "INIT 
runlevel x" fails hard, system must be rebooted/reset, Ctrl-Alt-Del fails.

System is a: Unisys Revolution 2X (7200) Server, Dual Pentium III's @ 600 
MHz, 256Mb ECC DIMM, Segate 18.5Gb SCSI-U2W.

Root is configured for 17Gb, with 512Mb for Swap and for the Boot 
partitions.  Multiple install configurations were tried.

Unable to enter Interactive mode prior to INIT loading, changing linux 
runlevels or SMP/UP has no impact on load failure.

RedHat 6.2 MP/UP does not exhibit this boot INIT failure.

Reassigned to kernel as this is the probable problem area
