Red Hat 9 boot problem

I just installed Red Hat 9 on my computer for the first time. I know very little about linux systems but know much about widows (and dont like it). The install all went nice and smoothly, I reformatted both of my HD's during the install and wanted to run a straight Red Hat 9 system. When I tried to boot my system up it stops at the following line:

apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver Version 1.16)

I searched the forums for this string and found little help. There were a few others who experienced this problem but it didn't look as thought they had solved their problem. I am currently using my school's computers to access this forum so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

boot into linux single user mode and disable apm.

when grub boot up

press a and add 1 to the line. press b to boot into single user mode.

use chkconfig to disable apm at all runlevels

try booting again
