I was tracking down a similar hang and had to disable acpi (turns out 
I'm an idiot and the apparent hang at boot was because I forgot console 
was redirected to the serial port of the machine next to it), but I had 
to jump through hoops to do it it seems.  I believe all you have to do 
is 'unset acpi_load' at the boot loader prompt.  I had tried 'set 
acpi_load=NO', and finally 'unset module_path' to keep the kernel from 
finding /boot/kernel/acpi.ko.

Hope this helps,
Anthony Jenkins
