Description of problem:
During boot, freezes after udev at

Initializing hardware...

I've seen a couple fc3 bugs to this effect, but mine is a little different - it never gets to

storage network audio

Those have not been echoed at time of freeze.

kernel 2.6.11-1.1275_FC4 does in fact work.

Do you have SELinux enabled, and does it work if you boot with
enforcing=0 or selinux=0?
Comment 2 Fred New 2005-05-05 00:56:10 EDT
I'm having the same problem on my Pentium III 800 MHz system.  I'll try
enforcing=0 in a moment:

grub.conf:

        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1284_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/12 quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1284_FC4.img

Comment 3 Fred New 2005-05-05 01:10:53 EDT
It boots with enforcing=0. I still see
Starting udev: MAKEDEV: mkdir: File exists
                      [  OK  ]
Initializing hardware...

but it continues ahead instead of hanging.

But going back to the hanging system - the keyboard is still active; I can turn
the NumLock LED on and off.  But Ctrl-Alt-Delete doesn't work at this point.

I'm pretty new to Linux.  How would I boot enforcing=0.

> I'm pretty new to Linux.  How would I boot enforcing=0. 

Just modify the kernel arguments at startup. When grub comes up, select the OS
to boot and hit "a", then make the kernel line something like this;

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1284_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/12 enforcing=0 quiet
