That often happens when the machine contains an unsupported video card. Try using the failsafe graphics option or get a different distro. Fedora has become awfully picky about hardware. F11 recognized neither of my nv9600 and nv250 cards; most other distros picked them up just fine.

Well, I'm afraid that won't work. The GM45 intel chipset has an awful reputation and appears to be causing issues even with Fedora 11.

I'm not sure whether your really need Fedora 9, though. Maybe you need at least Fedora9; and often, even the "Fedora" part is not really required so you can use a different distro instead.
