Did the "Enabling Swap Space" get a green [OK]? If it did, it may be
the next process that is hanging. Don't have a Fedora machine handy at
the moment, but from memory, it might have something to do with
getting/setting time from the hardware clock. Anyway, check if you get
an [OK] when enabling swap space. If you do, try to find what the next
step is in the startup scripts.
