Hi Levi,

You should probably try to boot into the server in single user mode
and try to work your fix there. Google "grub single user" or "lilo
single user" and follow the directions. Hopefully you have a backup of
your pam.d directory if not you may want to look through your
.bash_history file to try and reconstruct where you may have gone
wrong. At the very least you can probably remove or comment out the
pam_mount directives until you get this sorted.

Well, my new librarian was cleaning in her closet and accidentally turned off my LTSP server and my Vexira anti-virus definitions server. I'm on the point of freaking out here, what do I need to do to recover? Thanks a ton, you guys have always been a huge help.
