Core 5 test 2 boot problems

I decided to try test 2, install worked well but the system always freezes during bootup when it gets to loading sshd. I've tried running interactive startup but it also freezes regardless of wether I hit Y or N for sshd. Sometimes the interactive start up will freeze before it gets to sshd, the strange thing is that the services which load fine during the non interactive startup mode will sometimes freeze in interactive mode, it seems to be quite random.

It's really been frustrating me. So I tried upgrading my core 4 installation next and it now also freezes during start up, I think it may be something to do with the 2.6.15 kernel and my hardware as I can boot to a command prompt by pointing grub to the old 2.6.14 kernel. Anyone have any advice?

Can't say much about FC5 except that it is a test version for a reason. Does it come with kernel 2.6.15? If so, and if your FC4 now freezes wth 2.6.15, you may just be out of luck with that particular kernel. I had a Shuttle box running FC4, which worked fine until I upgraded to kernel 2.6.13. The upgraded kernel recognized my SATA drive as IDE instead of SCSI, and the disk performance was just pathetic. I had to wait for kernel 2.6.14 to get rid of that issue.
