1. have you actually looked at your logs yet?

2. try sending this guy a private email and ask him if he ever found the
answer to his problem:

http://www.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&th=b3e6ba6021e8a3f2&rnum=7

3. see if this helps:

http://www.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&th=61912e619f4f06af&rnum=30


4. boot into single user mode.  run "halt" and/or "telinit 0" from the
   prompt.

5. become root, then run "halt".

6. from the default runlevel, type:

   telinit 1

   then

   telinit 0

   see if it hangs when you try to go from 5 to 1, or if it hangs if you
   try to go from 1 to 0.

7. what was the last administrative thing you did before the problem
appeared?
