The boot message is a red herring, it really doesn't have anything to
do with the audio.

It *might* have something to do with ACPI ... search the CentOS list
archives for a thread with the subject "CentOS 4.2 hangs at power-on
boot" from February 2006.  I had the same problem, and in fact still
do, though now it's intermittent.
