Get rid of "rhgb" and/or "quiet" on the grub kernel command line.
(Hit "e" to edit the entry in the menu.) See if you get a more useful
You might have to add "selinux=0" on the kernel command line. I
wouldn't be at all surprised if the problem is there. You may also be

If all else fails, get a copy of FC3 CD1 or the boot.iso and do an
"upgrade" (be sure to add "askmethod" to the boot: command line if you
don't have all the CDs so you can do an HTTP install). That should
fix up any problems, but it won't actually upgrade any packages except
