Fedora crashes while booting


Well, I'm fairly new to linux, but I've been trying to install and configure linux for a while now, and after failures with Mandrake, SuSE, Gentoo, Debian and SuSE again (don't ask), Fedora worked just fine for me a week ago. Sure there were some problems, but I've been able to solve almost all of them by googling everything.

Except this: Fedora almost always crashes at startup, usually while detecting new hardware (judging by the leds, it's the floppy drive that causes the problems), but sometimes also while "detecting the network" or even setting up the hostname. It's very odd. The system just freezes and I have to reset, which cannot be healthy. Sometimes everything works just fine but that's rare.

I have no stability problems whatsoever once I get to logging in, so it kinda ruins a very good linux experience. I'm a bit at a loss....

Well, that works, insofar that the system doesn't crash there anymore. However, now it always crashes at starting cups, something it hasn't done before, ever. Took me close to ten times before I finally could boot up again...all unclean reboots :/

Even Interactive startup and not starting cups just gave me a black screen, not the usual login screen.

All seems pretty random to me.

Oh, and now I also get this a couple dozen of times at boottime:

usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status ffff, frame# 65535
usb-uhci.c: Host controller halted, trying to restart.
usb-uhci.c: Host controller halted, trying to restart.
usb-uhci.c: Host controller halted, trying to restart.
