Please accept my apologies if this offends you or appears
condescending to you in any way, I have been told by people that they
perceive me as such at time. I assure you I mean no offence.

Now that that is out of the way, let's get down to business.

>From the information you have given so far, you are able to boot up
successfully, right? I do remember a glitch when upgrading a while ago
that caused a similar issue. Until I found the solution, I just added
mount / -orw,rebind in /etc/rc.local

That caused my / partition to be rw as soon as the boot sequence is
completed but still caused my some issues during the daemon start up.
After a while I moved that line to /etc/rc.sysinit so it would execute
before the daemons.

Still a while later I discovered what the problem was, and I think it
was in /etc/fstab, something really obvious, in hind sight but I
cannot recall at the moment. Would you mind attaching your fstab?
Maybe seeing it will trigger my memory.
