OK, I deleted and escaped and I am back on root (hd0, 0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- generic root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splas->
initrd  /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-12-generic

I pushed e on the kernel line on now I have a screen with the same thing at
the top and intead of root, I have quiet splash written. I wrote space
acpi=off noapic and do I press enter or just esc?
Thank you
