Subject: Can't boot into multi-user mode!

I'm having a bit of an emergency here.

I recompiled most everything yesterday, and all was fine.  I could boot
and run and everything.  This includes the kernel.

Today I supped, and recompiled everything that had changed (except for
the /usr/bin and /usr/sbin, I haven't gotten around to them yet).  I
did *not* recompile the kernel today.

I also replaced some of the stuff from /usr/src/etc which had changed.

I then rebooted.

It got to the point in the boot process (as normal) where it recognized
my ethernet board, then it printed out (again, the next two lines are
normal for the new kernel):

biomask 840 netmask 200 ttmask 1a
stray interupt 11

Then it dumps me into single-user mode, with only the root file system
mounted (in read-only mode, yet).

How do I get it to reboot into multi-user mode?
Failing that, is there a command to go properly from single-user mode
to multi-user mode?

Please reply directly to me, because I can't recieve this mailling list
until I get my machine running again.  I'm sure its something silly that
I did; on the other hand, this same kernel booted just fine yesterday.

I tried putting the stuff in /etc back to what it was, but I may have
missed something.

Any help will be appreciated!
