Host computer freezes on kernel loading message. How do I find out why?

My computer freezes on the kernel loading message pretty much everytime the computer has been left off for too long (not sure how long, because its not 100% reproductible.)

reseting will mostly go back to the error. shutting off and on, will mostly fix it. again, nothing 100% certain.

2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP, with a stock install of debian 6 squeeze. Also happened with the last versions of Ubuntu.

I think it's hardware related because in the logs after kernel bootup is the Raid startup... my drives are not high end and in fact I just had to replace one (I'm clueless so far).

So, the question is: How do I gather more information on why this may be happening so I can fix the problem?

EDIT: Forgot to remove the quiet option... thought it was freezeing up before any kernel output...

So, without the quiet option if freezes on two places: One right after the last line of USB initialization; two other times on the line after the USB initialization... which is the ATA

syslog.1 obviously contains data from last good boot as this problem ocurs before filesystem init
