Sound real familiar to me. Tried Red Hat, Mandrake, Debian, Mandrake 9.2, Slackware all with the exact same problem. Unplugged my usb mouse and keyboard and everything's been fine since.
The kicker was that I had installed all these distros on this box before without any problems other than the typical problems with the nvidia video & network drivers. I just couldn't figure it out. Still can't actually. The usb mouse & keyboard work fine during install. They even work with the bios, which I didn't think they would without a driver. But once I had linux installed it would hang on boot everytime.
Hopefully you are having the same problem since it's easy to fix. Actually I figured it out from reading another post where someone was having the same problem after he installed a usb camera, so anything usb might be causing it.
