Are you running the Crossover plugin? I've had something similar to this 
happen to me with that. It had to do with the OSS sound drivers in the 
2.4.18 kernel.

If you don't have Crossover, but have sound configured, it may be a 
place to start. Try booting with an alternative kernel.

If you have another machine, and you can plug the network into the 
laptop, have you tried telneting to it?

just some random ideas. Some more info would be helpful, like -- has 
this laptop ran Linux before? If so, what distro was it? What kernel was it?
