Kernel kernel-2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 freezes early in boot

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It happens always on my machine: Clevo Notebook, Pentium 4, 512mB, etc.
Booting kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 freezes. kernel-2.6.18-1.2786.fc6 works OK.
I remove option 'quiet' from boot command line. The last kernel messages before
freezing are in attached screenshot (JPG image)

Output of dmesg from working kernel (2.6.18-1.2798)
I'm seeing the same exact problem.
Platform: Compaq Proliant 1850R 512mB Pentium 3
My machine also works fine on the old Kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
Adding APIC to the boot options fixes my problem. It seems MY problem is a dupe
of <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=215154">bug

I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
It was a bug with specified kernel version (or some versions) in FC6 as far as I
remember. I have not seen it later in F7 and F8. So I think it can be closed as
