i can report the same problem, however for me it has to do with my USB 
cdburner. i reported this earlier this week, but it seems to have 
slipped by. so i repost:

on both my laptop and desktop, the boot sequence gets stopped up by my 
USB cdwriter using the Planet 2.4.22-6.ll.rh90 kernel. the halt point is 
the same reported above:

Initializing firewire controller (ohci1394)     [OK]

then freeze-o-matic.

the normal redhat kernel with capabilties slows down at the same place 
in the boot sequence [just after the initialization of the firewire 
devices and just before the harddrive parameters are set] but then keep 
going. the ccrma kernel just freezes there.

let me know if you would like to see any logs or something.
