FC5 Crashes on boot

A coworker of mine has installed Fedora Core 5 on a machine here, and has had some difficulty in getting it to boot after compiling a custom kernel. The currently installed kernel is 2.6.15, and the problem seems to occur just as init loads. The machine simply hangs. He's gone for the night, and I'm a BSD guy so I was hoping someone might have a pointer or some experience with this issue. He disabled some device drivers and networking functionality in the kernel that were unnecessary, so in the mean time I suppose I'll be tinkering with these settings.

If it won't boot how are you tinkering the settings. Question is vague. At what point is it hanging. Can you get to the logs. etc etc
