Have a macbook model 1,1 Late 2006.    Mac OS X 10.6 Snow leopard latest installed.   Was having multiple kernel panics and I decided to get the system cleaned by cache cleaner.   Did that with cocktail application.    Booted from OS disc and repaired hard disk permissions and verified it.   Now, when I boot from hard drive, I only get the apple logo with the spinning wheel (Not the rainbow wheel) and it's been a good twenty minutes since I've started up, but no result.   Also, tried pressing shift and safe mode startup but does not respond (not sure).   Resetting PRam also did not help.


HELP!!!   I want to copy all my data (especially) mails to external hard drive and then reinstall the OS.   Advice required here too.   How do I archive mails.   They are occupying crazy space on my hard disk.


Help requested urgently

Macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
