Greetings!
    I am unable to login as a user or as root.
    I had been using KDM but I decided to go back to using startx.
    I commented out the ttyv8 line in ttys then restarted.
    Now when the box starts I see:

login: Aug 29 07:07:58 sleepy gdnc: 2003-08-29 12:07:58.490 gdnc[212] No

I can boot single and re-set the root passwd.
I also copied the original ttys file back over the one I modified.

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Ray
