This is a widely-known problem. Here are some references:
I have been running FC6 on my C521. If I give no arguments to the
boot I get no hanging problems, but I only get 1 core running (AMD
X2 3800+). Try booting with "maxcpus=1" or "noapic nolapic".
The current workaround is to find an externally powered USB device.
I tried a PCI card but I don't get keyboard during bootup. Others
have used externally powered USB hubs with success.
