I take it you do have a dpt_i2o card in the system ? Also when its stuck does
switching to
screen4 (ctrl-alt-f4) show anything
Comment 2 James Tan 2004-02-15 00:00:47 EST
I am facing the same issue and with (ctrl-alt-f4), I get:

<6>Loading Adaptec I2O RAID: Version 2.4 Build 5
<6>detecting Adaptec I2O RAID controllers... 
<6>PCI: Assigned IRQ 11 for device 00:0b:1
<6>Adaptec I2O RAID controller 0 at f8900000 size=100000 irq 11

... hanged..

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/
