Our Princeton B1100 broadcasting server was working for the past couple of years, but all of a sudden it is acting up. It is running RedHat 2.4.26, which I know is very outdated, but has worked fine for us. The server will start up and go through the system check(I guess) then will proceed to a screen that says, I believe, B1100 login:. It's hard to make out the whole screen because it quickly disappears and goes to a black screen, but it does look like a text based login.
I've tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 like some people have suggested, but it does nothing.
Is there anyway to reinstall RedHat or will reinstalling wipe out necessary software?
BTW no RedHat cd was provided when server was purchased from Princeton.
