Hi
I've got Fedora running on my home machine ( a dual boot with XP).My
keyboard stops responding as soon as GNOME finishes loading.
Any idea why this is happening?

Try running through run level 5 instead of run level 3.

If you switch to another virtual console (ctrl-alt-1 for example) is it still frozen?

Come to think of it, can you even switch consoles??

When my comp is playing up and I suspect Gnome or KDE, my first step is to move all the config dirs/files ( ~/.kderc or ~/.gnome ? I forget the actual name) somewhere else and see if that helps. Very often it does. Then you can either do all your settings again or restore the files a few at a time and see what breaks it.
