On my hardware, 2.6.24 rawhide kernel works perfectly. 2.6.25 kernel hangs
during interactive startup: usually at udev, but occasionally makes it to
setting hostname or next one.
I've tried noacpi, noapic, nolapic, and nohz=off without improvement.
Hardware in brief is Core2Duo ULV U7500, Intel X3100 video, 1 GB ram, ICH8 HDA
audio and modem, IWL4965 BGN wireless, sky2 gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth, aes2501
fingerprint reader. More info to follow.

Strangely, if I wait long enough (a few minutes) I see "timeout, proceeding in
background" or something like that. Then the bootsplash appears, but without
text. The boot proceeds, but graphical elements only, no text. Finally, near
the end of the boot, it truly hangs, without gdm having shown up yet, and the
hard drive goes to sleep.
did you try a newer release? Did it work?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
