It would help if you did the following:
Boot the install DVD into rescue mode.
It will mount your installation as /mnt/sysimage
Let it mount it, because it will ask your permission.
If you have a usb stick, insert it, and mount it, and copy to it
Then using whatever system you used to post your message,
reply and attach those 4 files which you saved on usb stick.
