Ah wait, got it slightly wrong; from the RelNotes:

NOTE: The ACPI subsystem results in a kernel too big to fit on a
diskette; therefore, the kernel placed on boot diskettes does not
include ACPI support. In addition, because of these size issues,
emergency boot diskettes will not work. You must use rescue mode from
the installer instead of an emergency boot diskette.

Guess you have ACPI problems. Tried booting with pci=noacpi or acpi=off?
