Initializing USB Controller (usb-uhci) booting mandy 9.2


My system hangs at this point on first boot after install (and all subsequent boots, warm and cold).

I have tried installing Mandrake 9.2 from scratch, and also a scratch 9.1 install which works fine and then an upgrade to 9.2.

Upon the first boot of 9.2 the system hangs at the above message (title of this post).

I'm unsure of where to look, although I think I'd have to use the boot disk to get to the console.

Its strange that this is my second install of 9.2 on this box. The same happened the first time (clean install) but then I just re-installed 9.2 over again and it booted fine.

FYI: I have 4 USB devices (Mouse/Scanner/PC-WebCam/IR Dongle) - all allowed 9.1 to boot fine.
Like I said, its strange that this _has_ booted before but I cannot get it to happen again. I'm flumuxed!

Any help anyone?
