initializing hardware... storage network audio (then hangs)

My problem (which is driving me a little crazy):
During bootup, the system hangs during the initializing hardware phase, just after "audio" comes up. Now, the strange thing is that if I reboot, the system boots up fine, with no delay after "audio" shows up. Thus, second boot's a charm.

My system:
ECS PM-800 motherboard with Phoenix Bios V6.00PG
USB keyboard and mouse
External Firewire Drives
Fedora Core 3 running 2.6.9-1.681

I've read another thread, and the acpi=off option does not work. I have no map.1st file, either.

Not sure what to edit. Sort of a newbie I am.

Greatly appreciate your help!

I was searching through the forum looking for something similar to this.
I installed Fedora Core 3 on my machine and every time i reboot the system hangs after displaying "audio" while "initializing hardware", and works just the oposite, since if I turn the computer off and on again it boots cleanly...
My soundcard is a Terratec Aureon 7.1 Space. It uses the Envy24HT driver.
I believe this issue is caused by the sound card because it has a relay that is actuated one or two seconds before the hang...
- If I cycle power I hear the relay's click before "audio" being written and again after "audio" being written on screen.
- When I reboot the computer I only hear the first click, then "audio is printed on screen, along with a quite long error message. No second click is heard.
Sound works correctly under my desktop.

I'm not at home right now, but I can post the dump I see on screen when this error occurs.
Anyone with an aureon Soundcard working on FEDORA? Tell me how...

Thanks in advance.
