    What have you been playing with? ;)

    I'd boot off the system disk and repair permissions/disk and see if that helps.

    can you get into osx or does it just stop at the console. I think what happened was you changed your startup disk from your HD to network startup. If you can get into osx just reselect you startuo disk, if not then IDK
