If I remember correctly you mentioned that you were running Fedora Core 3, in
which case I'm guessing that in your boot options to the kernel you have
edit the boot line in grub and remove those options. There's a good chance that
Fedora is suppressing whatever error messages are appearing during boot. So what
happens is that while loads of error messages are being pumped out and the
system loops trying to deal with a problem it looks like it is just hanging to
If you can get the error messages from the start up, someone here might have a
stab at the problem.
