Doesn't have to be.  Sendmail starts, usually, on a machine, and if that
can't resolve the machine's address, booting gets delayed.  X may need
to resolve the local address, and then there's applications that display
something graphically...

I note, later on, your comment about memory might be the problem.  It'd
be odd for memory to go funny on two computers at the same time, but
wouldn't be odd for recently updated software or configurations on both
computers to have a problem.  Did you change anything on both of them

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
