5? 5.1? 5.2?

Not much to go on.

Since you say "Workstation" one might presume that you are running in 
GUI mode.  Have you tried booting to runlevel 1 or 3?  Turning off 
"quiet" mode?  Might see some useful hints.

In GRUB type "a" to append/edit the kernel boot line.  Delete "rhgb 
quiet" and replace it with "1" or "single" for single-user mode, or "3" 
for full network boot without GUI.  See if anything enlightening shows up.
