    I would boot into init level 3. When you see the initial fedora count
    down line hit return. Then when you are on the line with the kernel
    you want to boot hit an a. This will allow you to add a 3 at the end of
    the line. He hit return. When things boot to level 3 try to logon.
    If you can't you will get more useful error messages. Can you
    login to root or only a non root user is giving you trouble?

    Alternates are to boot to init level 1 and check things out since you
    will be root without logging in. Also booting with a rescue disk may be

    If this is not clear ask further questions.
