OK folks, for the record & for anyone else who gets stuck on this, I
fixed the problem by booting into rescue mode from cd1, chrooted into
/mnt/sysimage and forced a reinstall of init like this:
When in rescue mode & chrooted mount the cdrom: mount /mnt/cdrom
Use rpm to force a reinstall of init:
rpm -ivh --force /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/SysVinit-2.78-19.i386.rpm
Exit the chroot environment & reboot.
Hope this helps someone in the future :-)
