If you look through the archives you will find a thread titled FC4
freezes. In it I talk about my experience with FC4 freezing. I would
suggest installing the latest FC3 test kernel and seeing how it works
for you.

Use "rpm -i --nodeps --oldpackage kernel-2.6.11-1.35_FC3.i686.rpm" to
install it. For me it boots without errors and fixes the freeze problem.
