Default Problems with F7 kernels

As an update in case anyone is curious:

I finally got around this problem as I described here:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=905249&postcount=13

Basically, the common thread here seems to be Broadcom cards. In
2.6.22 and earlier the b43 driver was not loaded for my hardware:
0f:00.0 0280: 14e4:4328 (rev 01)

Now that it is in kernel 2.6.23, it seems to be the culprit in hanging
my system on Starting udev. The following resolved the issue for me:

In /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist add:

blacklist b43
blacklist sbs
blacklist mac80211
blacklist cfg80211

In /etc/modprobe.conf add

alias b43 off
alias sbs off
alias mac80211 off
alias cfg80211 off
