Griffo is on a distinguished road

imac G4 would boot - tried everything, so .....

Have installed OSX onto free partition on external (firewire) HD. All went OK, got Airport working and went online for updates. Installed a few then, when it instructed me to restart, the reboot failed!! It now keeps saying the PC needs to restart, press the power button for a few seconds or press restart. Have done that several times - stuck in a loop!

Tried holding Apple + S intending to try /sbin/fsck -f but can't get that far. After loads of text, the last line says "panic - we're hanging here" and that box saying I need to restart comes back!!

Please can someone help before I go mad????
