I have this also.  The culprit on my system seems to be the GPM (Console Mouse 

I loged on in runlevel 1 (append single to your kernel command), and tried to 
start that service.  It hangs while starting.  When I aborted, and then 
checked with ps, it show that the process is loaded... So my guess is this is 
something in the configuration file.

Anyway, my fix was to chkconfig level 123456 gpm off, then exit and the system 
boots up normally.

Hope this helps
