CentOS Booting issue

I am using CentOS 4.4 (Final) OS.
During bootup; My system hangs at the following line:

Starting udev:
Initialising hardware... Storage....

[ If I remember right, it used to proceed onto Network, and audio at this juncture ]

I have sometimes seen this behaviour. The last time I had this problem it was related to a USB device being plugged in.

I didn't find out why I think it was a particular USB mouse that caused my problem. You could try removing any USB devices you have plugged in and see if the system boots.

I have a dual boot configured on my PC.

I boot into Solaris 6/06 and CentOS and have grub configured for the same.

This particular behaviour comes about when I would have spent long hours on Solaris machine close to 10 - 12 hours, and then choose to get back to CentOS.

I would like to know, how to recover from this issue, as I don't want to erase the partition, for fear of losing data.

I have access to Knoppix, so you can let me know any system recovery actions to be done...after I boot from livecd and mount the CentOS root partition.

I just need to get back to working on my CentOS rightaway.
