If it is, in fact, a problem with cups, you can use the "I" key toward
the beginning of the startup process (when you see "Welcome to Fedora"
in the console messages) to perform an interactive startup.  You can
safely answer "Y" to every initscript startup until you reach the cups
line.  Choose "N" for that script, and then at the next script you can
choose "C" to continue booting.  If you experience a lockup within the
next few scripts I would start to suspect other causes, like low RAM.
