This would appear to be a kernel issue with USB.

I have the same problem with a Compaq Presario. Is this a similar bug to 75596?

In a Compaq Presario 1500 (version 1525EA) the install Red Hat Linux 8.0 
process hangs while detecting the partitions (during the kernel boot); with RH 
7.2 it installs but I can't put the display to work (although I didn't try the 
framebuffer solution...)
Comment 7 Jelle Veldman 2002-12-05 08:45:48 EST
Accoording to an entry in another newsgroup, the problem is solved by using 
kernel 2.4.19 + a patch to 2.4.10-pre10.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
