Startup Hangs on Initializing USB Controller

I don't mean to double post my message, but I'm new to the forum and realized today that I posted into a closed/resolved thread (I believe that's what the envelope with a red dot means).

My startup stops after "Setting hostname localhost.localdomain" (Verifies that this can happened with OK). Since Initializing USB Controller or Mounting USB Filesystem is next in the order, I assume it's a problem with that process. Unforunately, my system never gets past this regardless of how many time I reboot.

I'm using 7.2. It has happened three times in the last month. The past two I reinstalled linux and it fixed the problem temporarily, but I'm sick of doing that and hope that I can learn a bit more in order to resolve it and keep my current install.

I've tried editing module.conf as suggested in this thread and that doesn't do anything.

I looked at the rc.sysinit file and wonder if I can do anything there? Or, would upgrading to a newer version of linux help? Or, installing an upgraded kernel?

Somewhere I read that someone bypassed this part of the startup, but I cannot figure out how I'd even try this.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreiated.
