how to disable the firewire kernel module? go into /etc/rc.d/init.d and grep for the name of the firewire module... when you locate the script that has the line
/sbin/modprobe <firewire module>
comment out the line and that should take care of it.

Just curious, what is the exact line when it hangs?

Is it the firewire module, or does it say "bringin up loopback interface" and then hangs? Because there have been a number of problems for people on laptops (at least in RH8, though the should've fixed that problem).

Just wondering.

been on this board for a month now... not a redhat guy myself... in fact I actually kinda told off one of their reps when I ran into him at a conference... but rh8 seems to have a lot of problems... I'm not bashing redhat... but a lot of problems seem to have been solved when people went and installed rh9... might want to try downloading the isos and giving it a shot. unless you're already using rh9... in which case it wont do you much good huh.

It no longer freezes at loading the firewire module but now it hangs at finding module dependicies...I am thinking of giving up on RH9 I have had nothing but problems with it on a few of my systems. all I was able to fix except this one. I am planning on going back to RH 7.3 Redhat's last decent and stable release in my opinion or just installing Slackware. Thanks guys for all your help
