I loged out of the Debian system until after 1am this very morning, and everything was fine at that time.

The booting msg shows "Starting postgreSQL 8.1 database server: main", and then hung forever and not move anymore.  I have to turn off the computer power to stop it!  I tried to loged in via the Recovery mode and was able to login as root, but I don't know what to do about the PostgreSQL and whatever related system booting process at the command line mode??:((
