After reading David Rector's comment in this bug report about
"interaction between grub and my motherboard/BIOS", I started
googling for some new terms, and was able to find some information
that I had not found during any of my previous searches.

I found a page on an Ubuntu forum
    <http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-516864.html>
in which someone recommended upgrading the BIOS for the SD32G2.
I went to Shuttle's download page, found the downloads for the SD32G2 BIOS,
    <http://global.shuttle.com/download03.jsp?PI=247>
and saw this comment on BIOS version SD32S30D with update date 20070426:
    "2. Fixed can't install Linux with Dual Core CPU."
I downloaded the latest BIOS version (SD32S30E, update date 20070607)
and flashed my BIOS using the instructions at
    <http://www.nenie.org/misc/flashbootcd.html>.
After this I was able to boot into the regular kernel, no hang.

So it turns out this is not a Fedora bug nor a grub bug, but a BIOS bug
in the Shuttle SD32G2, and the solution is to upgrade the BIOS.  At least
now there is a bug report here with the solution, in case anyone else
is having this problem.
