Fedora 17 boot problems

I'm trying to dual-boot Fedora 17 and Windows XP. I installed Fedora from the live-cd with no problem onto a second hard drive, and put GRUB2 on the first drive so it's the boot loader.

When I try to boot Fedora I get a "Cannot open file font True" message and it stops booting. I looked around and found that the error should only delay the booting, and found how to fix it. I found out that in GRUB2 I can hit 'e' and modify SYSFONT to get rid of that error. Then I boot and it loads Fedora, shows the Fedora logo, then goes to a black screen and nothing else happens.

What is wrong? What needs to be done to fix it?

Thanks for the help in advance

Re: Fedora 17 boot problems

Sadly, as you figured as well, the sysfont error can be ignored.
What might be of use is the output of:
Code:
dmesg | tail
As well as:
Code:
cat /etc/default/grub
