This has proven in the pas to be a NIC misconfiguration or a network issue. I think that is what it is on this one too. Is there a way when I see an app haning at boot to make the server stop trying to load the hung app and bring the OS up into the GI so that I get to fixing it? Thanks in advance.

During the boot sequence there is a point at which you can enter
 an "I" to begin "Interactive" mode.  From there, you can pick and
 choose which services/daemons to turn on.
