I am trying to run fsck -y in single user mode. That's all fine and everything, but I cannot seem to reboot into the "single user mode" everyone talks about. I select "reboot" from the apple, then after I hit "yes," I hold down Apple-S. I get the spinning circle (not beachball), the "gong"...then the grey screen with the apple on it, then another spinning circle, then the graphical login screen...no "UNIX dungeon of command line horror." All while still holding down the Apple-S buttons. What, exactly, am I doing wrong? Should I wait until the gong to depress the buttons? When should I release? Why is the sky blue? By the way, I've seen conflicting reports on the fsck command...is it 1. fsck -y or 2. /sbin/fsck -y help please.
