Sorry for jamming in. I'm experiencing the same problenm w/ severn test2, my
Toshiba Tecra 8100 just hang up while the graphical boot is transiting to gdm.
The whole laptop freeze, ctrl-alt-F* no response as well.
Note, I have disable kurzu h/w detection, which seem to hang the laptop as well.
This sounds similar to #100920.
