What network card ?
SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet (built into motherboard)

That seems to come up with no error messages.  Here is my messages from
the new kernel..

Apr 29 00:28:46 scrappy kernel: eth0: Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex
My computer boots via rhgb to setting time/time server and freezes, so above is where it stops logging.

Dave,

I have sense removed that kernel since it didn't boot, but wanted to
follow up on if you knew of a problem or anything?  I'll either file a
bug, or wait until you put out a newer kernel version to see if it does
the same thign and then report it?

The sis900 driver had a bug that was patched April 20. Unfortunately, the patch introduced a regression that was then patched April 26 -- one day after 2.6.21 was released. The second patch appears to fix it, according to user reports in the below referenced thread.

Best,
Jay
