"Robert P. J. Day"
Default what checking can i do in recovery mode before trying to finish booting?

the backstory: in a fit of bad judgment yesterday, i ran
"do-release-upgrade" on my 11.04 system, and ended up in this situation:


after following various bits of advice gleaned from google, and
booting *many* times from a rescue CD, i am finally at the point where
i managed to boot one of my old kernels to recovery mode.

so i'm at a root prompt, and "runlevel" tells me "N S", which is
precisely what i expect at this point. given that it's taken me all
morning just to get to a recovery prompt, i'm terrified of doing a
reboot and putting myself back where i was before.

so while i'm at the recovery prompt, what are some things i can run
to just validate the sanity of the current system, and which command
would i use to *continue* the boot process to get me to my desktop?

as i said, i'm scared to do anything that would cost me this root
prompt that's taken this long to get to.
