Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login

Actual Results:  the machine locks up cold.  I cannot switch to any virtual
consoles.  The only recourse is to reboot.

Expected Results:  I should be able to log in

Additional info:

This is a standard RH8 upgrade, with GNOME as my desktop, and init level 5 by
default.  I am running the nvidia drivers, and will try it without them if I am
able to.  When I log in through gdm, The different icons progress across the
bottom of the redhat splash image, until it gets to the "Red Hat Network Icon"
icon, and then things hang.  The mouse is unresponsive, and I cannot switch to
virtual consoles or ssh into the box.
