Did you wait say 2 minutes before rebooting?
Something I would try is turn off the kudzu service.

kudzu is a hardware detection service
you can use chkconfig to shutdown kudzu or system-config-services.
But another question. did you try to modify your hostname?

To make the changes since the default will not boot will require a boot disk or use the Install CD and when it comes up enter ' linux rescue ' to enter rescue mode off the CD. Let it mount the harddrive partitions. Now this I am not sure will work this way. Using the command chkconfig to disable the kudzu tool.
chkconfig --level 345 kudzu off

Now if that command does not work under the rescue mode then to manually do what it does is this. Goto /mnt/sysimage/etc/rc3.d
cd /mnt/sysimage/etc/rc3.d

Now rename the S**kudzu to K95kudzu
mv S**kudzu K95kudzu
Replace ** with the real number it has in the place.
Must do the same in /etc/sysimage/etc/rc4.d and rc5.d as well.
