GRUB -- hangs on boot

any reason why grub would hang on startup? i see "GRUB" after
the bios stuff, and then... nothing.

a friend suggested trying windo~1 fdisk to make it a fat32
drive, wiping previous linux stuff off, then retrynig with a new
linux (ext3) partition scheme. i tried that (i think) and still,
hang on boot after seeing "GRUB".

is there a trick i missed in writing the boot sectors? (lilo
worked on the machine in the past...)

I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;

Did you know that you can SWITCH BETWEEN VIRTUAL CONSOLES using
leftalt+cursor{left,right}? To change from vc4 to vc5, press
alt-cursorright.  Going back to X from vc1 is as simple as
alt-cursorleft. (It doesn't work when you're already within
X11, though -- but control-alt-F1 does.)
