Use Alt+F1 to boot to a command prompt and then use TEDIT to edit
CONFIG.SYS (copy it to a new name first so you have a backup since
TEDIT is a little strange at first). Look for lines with IBMLANLK in
the name and REM them out. Alternatively, if you're on an HPFS
partition then make sure that the IFS=HPFS.IFS line occurs before the
two IBMLANLK lines and then reboot and see if it completes without
remming the lines - if it doesn't then get rid of them.
