There are some updates to the kernel in the testing yum repository, edit
/etc/yum.conf for the part referring to testing. This may help, as i
think there are some USB and firewire updates in there.

What happens if you edit the grub line at boot (press 'a' on the line at
boot to do this), and remove the nousb nofirewire quiet entries. Then we
may get some kernel output during boot to find out why it's not behaving
well.

Other then that as Jeff said, you are really going to have to let us
know the motherboard/usb information before we can realy provide much
more help.
