Hi
Could you add some more info.
- When does it "freeze" (if not sure, just some explanation what happens)
- Your system processor
- output of #df
- your /etc/grub.conf -file info
- output of command #ls -la /boot/

Kapi

During the startup, when I chose the top line (updated kernel version)
on the grub menu and then hit return, the round thing at center begins
the progress indication of booting into login window, then then window
is black out in text mode the frozen with the cursor blinking,
completely locked up.
The processor is Intel Core2Duo E6750 2.66Ghz

If you're saying that it locks up at the conclusion of the boot process, and
just before you'd normally get the gdm login screen, then try adding
'nomodeset' boot parameter.


Otherwise, if it locks up before the boot normally finishes, press the
escape key as soon as you get the progress indication, and see what happens.

Put it on your grub kernel command line....along with the other boot
parameters.
