Can you boot into single user mode?
If so, try disabling swap in /etc/fstab and rebooting. If it still locks up, then the problem is whatever comes after swap. Go through your boot scripts and find out what that is.

If it's a swapping problem then it's most likely to be a badly configured (for your hardware) kernel. Your best bet is to boot off a rescue disk, mount your filesystems, chroot to your installation and then recompile your kernel, selecting only things you need. Or just disable swapping (for less virtual memory but a much faster computer).
