Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Seems as though it's unhappy with your X settings. What hardware do you have (monitor/graphics card) and, if you do ctrl+alt+Fn (one of the function keys) are you taken to a terminal where you can log in as root and let use see the relevant bits of your xorg.conf file?
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
The initrd.gz is one of the files on the CD, it contains the init script. This one will be more verbose about what's going on than the stock one. Maybe you can see what's hanging. This is for Puppy 2.14 only!!
Are running Puppy as a live CD or a HD install? It seems it's stopping after network interfaces so I wouldn't think it'd be X related. When it's X related it doesn't even run X at all and just drops you to command line anyways.
