I was able to do this and now have a different outcome. Using safe mode 
the system eventually locks up but with different messages:

Failed to start LSB: HAL daemon               [FAILED]
[   79.8755491] Disabling IRQ #24

Then I get a flashing cursor but the keyboard doesn't work.

Also, I booted into rescue mode and checked menu.lst. The boot 
parameters already include nokmsboot.
