What I would do first would be to put the system in runlevel 1.  To do
that, you need to hit "a" when the grub menu comes up and then at the
end of the boot line you want to add "single".  Hit enter and you will
skip services loading and FC5 will dump you at a root prompt.

When you get there use chkconfig to stop the avahi-daemon from loading.
It will go something like

chkconfig --levels 2345 avahi-daemon off

Try that and see what happens.

Missiles of ligneous or osteal consistency have the
potential of fracturing osseous structure, but
appellations will eternally remain innocuous.
