Usually, the last thing you see is what you want to test out. Though I
doubt anacron is the problem, you could try individually starting and
stopping it. But a hang (or very long wait) at that point, or to do
with starting X could indicate a name resolution issue.

I fixed this by loading the second most recent kernel
(22.214.171.124.1369_FC4) instead of the most recent kernel
(2.6.14-1.1656_FC4) from the Grub menu. A lucky guess -- does anyone
have any idea as to why this worked? For example, what does the
