Question Boot failure on Compaq presario 2500

Hi guys,
I persuaded a friend to install linux on his laptot, a Compaq very very recent, and all's right, if I exceptuate that in the boot the system freezes when, checking the hardware, recognize USb 2.00 peripherals.
I used Slackware 9.00, LILO is correctly installed, and I ask to me if I have to give some parameter to the Kernel during the installation.
Thank you for your help
