Booting linux in single user mode
Today, we had to bring up a Debian host in single-user mode and it didn't want to cooperate. Note to self:
Next time LILO doesn't want to stop for a boot prompt, hold down the
key to force to stop for a prompt.
I don't know if that's a Debian default or something, but it's really annoying that something special is required to get a boot prompt.
