Fedora Core 5 Hang on load


Ok, so I finally got FC5 to boot after installing everything and now when it is loading I get to the point where it says,
"Checking for hardware changes".

After that it just hangs.

I'm running ATI X850HT
1 gig ram
3.0ghz HT
Sound Blaster Aud 2 ZS
ATI TV wonder pro
ASUS P4S800

I've tried to play around with it a bit, is some of the hardware I have known to be buggy? I don't think it is the ATI X850 though because it was recognized during installation.

Any help?

During startup there an option to hit I to go into interactive boot. Try that. During boot, tell it to skip Kudzu. You should be able to get your system up and from there try to figure out what happened.

What about linux text mode? Does that work? Try using linux text at the boot prompt and see if you can continue installation without an issue. If things go fine then you can deal with your display by playing around with your xconfig.
