Post your grub or lilo config.

Also, would you mind reducing the size of your sig?

Re: /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Don't know if you are still there and whats up with your installation, but I had the same error and fixed it by changing the initrd line in /boot/grub/menu.lst to:  initrd /boot/initrd26-full.img

While booting you have to press e in grub, edit that line and then press b for boot. After successfull booting you can then change the menu.lst file as root.

Good luck
