Hello all,
I've lurked for a bit, and stuck my nose into topics that I can help in, but now it's time for me to ask for your help.

Here is the problem: (After Authenticating)(GUI)Date and Time: NTP Tab. If I enable NTP(and I have opened it in the firewall), as soon as i click Apply, the system freezes, and never comes back.

System is HP dv9408ca Laptop with everything working except wireless NIC :) Oh, and I like Beer!

Off hand, I have no idea why you are freezing up?
So, let's see if we can jump start some help for you.

What is the output of :

cat /etc/hosts

[root@FC7L ~]# cat /etc/hosts
