Thank you for the quick response and I will try booting up in single mode for the root password issue. One of our main boxes at boot up comes up with the error message below and goes no further. It seems like the kernel is missing or got corrupted. The box ran fine till yesterday morning when we noticed it was at this stage. Is there anything that can be done to recover.

At the moment we have two problems: First, one of the mashins give no kernael error on the boot. Second, we have lost our root password to the second one. Is there a way to fix any of this two problems without reinstaling the system. > > Please, answer asap.
