Thanks Robin,

You were right about the device files by the way. They were all josed.
Here's what they look like now:

*(When you said /dev/ in you email I assumed you meant on my linux
distribution and not the actual /dev being used by my nfs server. 

Now to the problem. I believe the problem is the "Warning: unable to
open an initial console." error message. Any ideas?
