System is hanging at :BRinging up loop back interface"

Hi all,
I have configured the new kernel(2.4.18-5).
While booting it is hanging at "Bringing up loop back interface".Strangely it is not giving any error.Simply it is hanging there only.What could be the problem?
Did I miss any module from selecting while running xconfig?pls let me know immediately

Try this:
grep DEV_LOOP /usr/src/linux/.config

You should see either =m or =y. If not then you didn't put loopback support in the kernel.
