Re: hang on bootup
On my system, this line results in a 10 second freeze up, and then
Failed initialization of WD-7000 SCSI card!
It then continues to boot normally. Perhaps you didn't wait long enough.
Or, maybe you have a device that doesn't want to be probed (I solve this
by opening the case, unplugging all the cards except for the video card,
and then putting them back one by one until I run into the same problem).
