I think KRUD, being an RH-variant, has some key you can press during
startup to do interactive startup of services, saying yes or no 
to each one.  Since I gather from the above that the machine is hanging
when trying to start PCMCIA service, you can thus avoid starting just
that one service.

If that approach doesn't seem to work, start up into single-user mode
at your boot prompt, e.g., at a LILO prompt type "linux single".

In either case, you'll at least be able to get the system up, to do
further diagnosis or get a copy of your files.
