Linux booot problem

Hi,
I have a PC which i work rarely on,i exactly dont remember which os i had installed on it.My question doesnt matter to this info.

It has bzImage in its boot folder,so it boots but it is set to load root file system using nfs from another PC of me.

Once,i powered it off while it was running.This started all problems and now it keeps on restarting whenever i start.After loading kernel at some point...it restarts again.

I can format and re-setup everything again...but i want to recover it by tweaking...so that i can learn s'th.

Can anyone help?

So my question is: Can i get to see any log of boot error messages....?

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
