boot hangs?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I don't know if this has to do with SuSE or my hardware but sometimes when I turn on the computer the boot process will get to a certain point and then freeze. The only solution I've found is to turn it off and turn it on again. Is this a common problem with SuSE/Linux? I think it's a problem with either SuSE or my specific installation because the system posts without a problem. This also never happened with other Linux distributions I've tried. (Distributions)
