I tried it with kudzu turned off, it still hangs during the boot up sequense.
funny thing is that a few weeks back i tried out SUSE and during initialization SUSE would hang on "checking usb devices" or something like that. well I disabled usb in the bios. and it worked!
but here in blag during initialization I can't see any problems with USB , i even tried disabling it in BIOS just in case. but still BLAG just hangs there.

thank you whole-heartedly for trying to help.

Wow. I'm going crazy. Kudzu is off. Where is "there"?

Remember we are in a completely different space than you are. We have no idea what's going on there. You gotta help us help you!

ok, do what it says and press 'I' and enter interactive startup, and then when it gets to firewire select no! :D

did you press I ("eye") or l ("el") at that point? try just holding them both down *slightly before* the interactive startup thing comes up.

:( sorry for the late response, i was busy pulling my hair out because slashdot went down. ok, the problem seems to be with your USB keyboard. try using a PS/2 keyboard instead.

Here's what it looks like to me :)

The module that isn't loading is ibmcam. This is non-fatal and not causing the hang. FWIW, here's what ibmcam is:
* USB IBM C-It Video Camera driver
*
* Supports Xirlink C-It Video Camera, IBM PC Camera,
* IBM NetCamera and Veo Stingray.


What is hanging is "intializing firewire". It looks like that module loads and then the system stops. In this thread there is a doc on how to turn off firewire (e.g. doing "nofirewire" at the kernel boot in grub).
