Failed Boot

I'm a noob and have just downloaded Mandriva and found that after the installation if failed to boot.
I pressed Esc and it had stopped at this:

Bringing up interface eth0: [OK ]
Starting shorewall: Disabling IRQ #20

My guess is this is something to do with my network. I have a wireless network but couldnt configure it in the install so i think its trying to use my motherboards built-in ethernet port which isnt connected to anything. I guess this shorewall thing is a firewall, so anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Press escape when you first see the boot screen. Hit "I" for interactive mode and see if you can skip that line.
