I had a running Ubuntu 8.04 system as a client to an ldap server. ever since
the ldap server has been removed(detached form the network) the client fails
to boot up. the error message is displays is failed to initialize HAL.

i reset the /etc/fstab to remove the nfs to the server. i also googled on
this error and saw that if a cd is kept in the cd drive the machine might
boot up. but none of these came to my rescue.

my computer still doesnt boot !

could someone share their wisdom on this please ....
