Boot into linux single. In grub, select e, then e again, then edit the 
kernel line by adding the word "single" at the end of the line. Once in 
single, run setup and select services. Unmark httpd and reboot, again 
editing grub to take the single line out.

Once the server is up, manually start httpd while watching both the 
messages and httpd/error_log files.
