Thanks for the suggestions.

1. I will try configuring pcmcia as part of the kernel as Dan Sawyer suggests.
2. Greg Meyer asks if there is anything in the pcmcia slot when I have the
   problem. I have the problem whether or not my wireless card is in the slot.

3. honey@gneek.com pointed to a bug report for redhat 7.3 in July 2002:

   This seems very similar to my booting problem. I noticed when reading the
   bug report that there is a comment that this still happens with redhat 9.

No one commented on getting into interactive mode on boot. This seemed exactly
what I needed to investigate this booting issue but when typing "I" at the
brief prompt I have only very rarely been able to get into interactive boot
mode.  Is this a known problem? I suspect this may be due to there being only
short time window to type "I".
