In case the machine doesn't restart anymore, but you want it back to production as fast as possible : boot with some liveCD e.g. Gentoo's, Redhat's to launch the daemons in hurry,
mount /dev/sda2 hostexample
mount -t proc none hostexample/proc
mount -o bind /dev hostexample/dev
chroot hostexample /bin/ksh
Note change sdaX to your appropriate partition. Here sda2 is /.
Note use either /bin/ksh, /bin/sh or /bin/bash as default chroot shell.
Note the last command should mount /boot and swap.
Then start the needed daemons,
service syslog start
service mysqld start
service httpd start
service crond start
Note you won't be able to run specific modules like "bonding" and the iptables modules unless you prepare the same kernel version modules into /lib/modules.
Check and reinstall GRUB or LILO.
grub-install --no-floppy '(hd0)'
Note root seems not to be "/" here, it's rather /boot hence the first partition (hd0,0)
