Problem with applying patches...

I am trying to apply patch2.0.26 to my linux box which has 2.0.25 kernel
on it right now. I type this command "patch -p0 < patch2.0.26" and it
seems to work fine but at the end it asks me "File to be patched:".
Could someone tell me what I am suppose to do there?

Also another problem, actually not really a problem but when something
kind of weird started happening a day ago when my kernel boots. It will
get through up to inintrd and it will say

"Enter password for root to do maitinence:"
(Control-D to startup normally)

I have never seen it do this before. Anyone know what it is doing and
how I can make it stop showing up all the time?
