Cannot fork usually would indicate you are out of memory- something that
starts up in rc2.d has gone wild.

In single user mode, try to narrow it down by doing this:

cd /etc/rc2.d
for i in *
echo "memory status"
sar -r 5 5
echo "starting $i"
sh ./$i 

You also said you restored your root: I wonder just what you did here, because
not having swap could also cause that (that will show up in
the sar reports anyway).  Did you recreate the partitions
and forget swap maybe?
