"configuring kernel parameters"

Whenever I try to boot FC3, the boot hangs at "configuring kernel parameters"

I don't think it has anything with any sort of nVidia graphics card, as discussed in another thread.

How do I fix this??

I just finished fixing this same problem on my box. It had to do with Grub. Boot either the rescue CD or Knoppix, navigate to your HD (probably under /mnt/sysimage (Recuse disk) or hda,b, or c (Knoppix)) and $ nano /etc/grub.conf. There should be a line(s) like this:

title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
Change the bold part to:

title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 rw root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
of course, if you did't format the drive with VML, then root will = something else, but the ro/rw should be the problem
