Thank you. I changed the options as you suggest. The boot process goes 
now a little bit further, but it stops on an error of a new type:

Mounting /dev for udev
The "mount" command failed with error:
wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on udev, or too many mounted 
file systems

I have noticed, while booting MacOSX, that the phase "waiting for local 
disks" seems to take an abnormally long time: would the two things be 
related?

I can give my password and get logged in as root, and get a first 
prompt; then I could try some of the things that are suggested on the 
Web, only I don't see the result of my commands, because the text in the 
console does not move and the next prompt does not appear. The only 
command that has an effect is Ctrl-D, for rebooting.

How can I escape from this mess?

Chers.

Charles
