interactive stop on boot

Hi -- I'm running a "Tombstone" machine that's functioning as a
server. The machine is located somewhere with a fast connection, and
not somewhere that I have easy access to. As such, I want this
machine to do its best to boot up and get onto the network, no matter
what happens on boot, so that I have a chance to actually fix the
Lately when it boots it runs into an NFS mounting error, claiming that
some of my NFS-mounted drives have unexpected inconsistencies. It
says "unexpected error - help!" and then quits to a /bin/sh
single-user-mode prompt. As I am 10 miles away, this is decidedly
unhelpful. I don't care if it can't mount some irrelevant drive or
not; I want it to boot up and ask me questions later.
Is there a way that I can set the machine to do its best to boot no
matter what it finds at boot time? Thanks in advance for any help you
PS -- Boot messages not available, as the machine is down at the
moment and I can't get over there to type "<enter> exit<enter>"
until later this afternoon.
