Description of problem:
I have a Dell C840 that I use in both docked and undocked mode. This
worked fine with FC1. The hardware differences for the docking station
are an additional network card (3C905-TX), an Adaptec SCSI card, and a
USB HUB..  The upgrade to FC2 was done while docked. The system boot
beautifully while docked.. When undocked and booting init5, it hangs
when "Checking for Hardware changes". The only way I can get the
system to boot undocked is to comment out the USB hub and the docking
station network card in /etc/modprobe.conf and remove kudzu from
/etc/init.d and then boot init3. Even booting init5 with the lines
commented out, the system hangs. Once logged in I can startx with no

by "the system hangs", i mean that the boot-up sequence stops. I can
at anytime hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and the system will shutdown and reboot..
sometimes it does hang when it cleans up swap space while shutting
down and i have to hit the power button..

remember, while docked, there are no issues with start up or shutdown..

Let me know when more information you need..
