Fedora Core 4 freezes after grub, before log-in

I recently installed Fedora Core 4 (i386) onto a compaq presario 7940. I have one hardrive and am dedicating it to Fedora. I did an 'everything' install if it makes a difference. The install went fine, (all media passed and iso's sha1sum's matched) until the reboot. After grub loads, my screen goes black and nothing happens. My hard drive continues to work for 30 seconds or so- then everything halts, although my keyboard still respondes to caps/numLock. I've tried using the "I" (interactive) mode, everything loads ok, until I get to the login, (which I don't even see if i'm not in interactive mode) and if i'm quick enough I can type in my username and password before the screen goes black and enters a state as described above. I have still yet to see the desktop. Any help would be appreciated, keeping in mind I am new to Linux.
