There's some misconception here, as far as I see. The second (`fixit') CD
is not bootable; you have to boot using CD #1 and to select fixit mode
from the sysinstall program.

After that, the system still runs in single-user mode; you're just able to
repair an existing installation or to do simple tasks with CD #2; I've
never tried to invoke the multi-user mode using this CD.
