error in bootup ( smartd)

Hi,
I am installing RH Enterprise Ed. V4, in my PowerEdge 1855 Dell machine. However during startup, it is giving some error message related to smartd. Do you have any idea how to solve this out ?

Have you tried using the "Interactive" startup feature where it prompts to start each service? I think you press "i" at the initial startup screen where it says "red hat enterprise linux" at the top but before it begins listing all those green "OK"'s. Disable the smartd service on startup and see what happens. If it boots successfully, the first thing I'd do is get any data you want to keep off of that hardware.

Have you tried anything I suggested? What was the result if smartd was disabled did the machine boot normally?
