Thanks Nigel,

I did follow the instructions for installing the kernel, and it works and
is installed as shown by what you suggested in your second point
(although that alsa package is actually listed as
kernel-module-alsa-2.6.12-0.21.rdt.rhfc4.ccrma-1.0.9b-1.rhfc4.ccrma, could
that have anything to do with it?)

Altering grub.conf doesn't really reveal much, as everything that is shown
on screen still succeeds, this time getting as far as setting 
localhost.localdomain (I think) and then hanging.

Anyone have any more ideas? I'm pretty stuck with this.
