    SM is claiming that it completely crashed my server and is causing segmentation faults on boot. I have been waiting 24 hours now for a system restore, and it looks like ill be waiting 24 more.

    yes that is true, it kills off your binary files. ask them if they can copy them off another server. takes baout 2-3 hours. thats what they did for a client of mine
