Hi Gregg,

Thanks for replying.

No. I'm consistently booting normally with GRUB, but ONLY from a cold start. I'm consistently failing on warm boots, with no visible console output.

I believe so. I do have an initrd line in my grub.conf and my kernel line has a root parameter. Here are the relevant lines from my menu.lst:
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-22.EL.img

Done elsewhere in this thread.
