this is the error message when i booting my system:

mounting proc file system ...
warning: can't open /etc/mtab: no such file or directory
mount: only root can mount proc on /proc

you should not be reading this error message. it means that an unforseen 
error took place in /etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.d/S20mountproc, which exited 
with a return value of 1.


the /etc/passwd file is available in /etc and correctly written!
