That sounds more like a configuration and setup issue where you might
have a problem with your network setup and the DNS requests hang.

Try waiting a really long time (speaking 30 minutes up to 2 hours).

Or boot the system in runlevel 1 (single user mode) and try starting
the network and see if that works, especially try

nslookup www.redhat.com

If that doesn't work then you most likely have a problem with DNS.

Read ya, Phil
