CentOS 5.5 Startup hangs at “Starting udev:”

As mentioned previously, I’m reusing a Dell Dimension E521 to run my media server in CentOS 5.5.  The funny thing is that I couldn’t start up the system because it would hang at “Starting udev”.  I looked at the boot sequence and noticed that it was trying to initialize peripheral drivers.  So, I went ahead and started disabling peripherals from the BIOS.  The sound card did the trick.
