Hummm... It seems those files have to do with the single user mode. After all, I am perhaps paranoid ! :-)
Sorry for the noise.

I got some problems (disk access denied, bus errors,...) that led me to go into single user mode and fsck my partitions. I noticed then that there were some directories created in the tmp directory, called "dev" and "etc", and one file in the / directory called "success" with 0 length. At reboot, these files disapeared. Does anybody know if this could be a sign of a hacked computer ? I mean could someone have installed a rootkit or some such ?
I'm not paranoid but this indeed seems strange.
