I net-installed an AMD64 PC and an x86 PC and both of them hung with "Redhat Nash version 6.0.19 starting" shown on the screen.

I had FC6 working just fine on the same machines.

Try removing rhgb quiet from the grub entry.
On the grub screen, move to the fedora entry end press 'e', move to the line which ends with rhgb quiet and press 'e' again.
Then remove rhgb quiet and press enter and then 'b'.

You should now see some more messages.
Is it hanging with inifinite messages that look like this?
