Just experienced the same situation on a Fedora 1 install on a Compaq
850R.   Booted from a rescue CD and saw that boot.log had a line
reading "firstboot:  Failed to open connection to a session manager,
so window positions will not be saved:  SESSION_MANAGER environment
variable not defined"   

Prompted me to recall that graphical install was successful, but
looked "problematic"  (refreshes were awkward, slow)...I changed
/etc/inittab to default to runlevel 3 as oppsed to 5 and the next
bootup was successful. 

Upon successful boot, the above message: "hda: attached ide-cdrom
driver" is displayed along side a smartd init failure... Incase that's

Same problem here.

System is an Athlon XP 1800+, 256megs of mem, 160 gig HD, ac97 sound, 
ATI Rage 128 Pro video card.

During Firstboot, the system froze, and I had to hit the reset button.
On reboot, the system got stuck at "hda: attached ide-cdrom

I booted from a rescue cd, and checked the boot.log file, and had the 
same "firstboot:  Failed to open connection to a session manager,
so window positions will not be saved:  SESSION_MANAGER environment
variable not defined" error.

Changed my runlevel to 3, and rebooted.

Now the system freezes right after "Enabling swap space: [ OK ]".

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
