Hi all,

I have been trying to get a usb stick 8G to boot centos.
I am as far a it boots and hangs at "Switching to new root".

I take the same USB stick and put it another PC and it boots fine.

What might I look for as to why the machine hangs at switching to new root?

Of course the machines are different. The one that does not boot is an 
ebox 2300sx and
the one that does boot is an amd 4800+ with all disks unplugged except 
the USB stick.

I am sooooo close.
