Sounds to me like the system hasn't come fully up.
In the past I've seen the boot process hang with sendmail or other
processes doing dns queries (with a crappy 80% loss DSL line). Doing
a Control-C will kill the hung process and allow startup to continue,
but the system shuts down shortly thereafter.
In my case I never got to the console "login:" prompt.
I never investigated this fully as I would either just wait on the dns
timeouts or "fix" the DSL line. It's been a while so I don't remember
if this was only with 4.X or also happened with 5.3.
I've never been lost; I was once bewildered for three days, but never lost!
