System hangs on changing init levels is a pretty serious issue. Raising severity
so this does not get lost in the pool of "normal" severity issues.
Raised priority and added ACK flags for approval into rhel5.

What video hardware is this with? Does it still happen with the vesa driver
loaded? Is the box dead to the world or just to the console (ie, does the
network still work)?
The video card was nvidia NV41GL Quadro Fx 1400 and the driver is nv. It was
happening even with vesa driver loaded and the box was dead to the world.
regressed with 01 Nov 2006 weekly release and it seems fixed this issue.

To clarify, this is working now in the November 1 snapshot?
yes, this issue is fixed in 01 Nov 2006 weekly update
Good. Removing from the RHEL5 list then, but leaving open, since I'm not
immediately sure which update would have fixed this.

This translates to kernel-2.6.18-1.2739.el5. Hope this helps.
RH - Please close.
Dell verified fix. Requesting RH to close.
Verified it was not found in RHEL5-Client-20061207.0. Resolved it.
