bizarre "verifying dmpi pool" behavior

I've installed SuSE 7.1. On reboot when the machine gets to "verifying dmpi pool" it starts displaying 0101010101...etc. without stopping. I cant break out..noting. I'm thinking this is a boot sector/lilo issue. Is there a way to recreate the boot sector from linux? Any ideas?

Thanks.

Re: bizarre "verifying dmpi pool" behavior

This was strange behaviour indeed. I set the disk to master and reloaded linux. I haven't installed linux in a few years and they've made it so simple now its almost confusing.
