Is it possible for you to paste the output from the kernel starting up?
Something like what dmesg would show you?
What other cards do you have in your 2100? I had issues booting Linux on my
2100 4/275, because I have a ZXLp-E3 video card which Linux doesn't support.
I just hung, with no error message, when initializing the card.
So if you could give us a full list of the hardware you have, and any output
from the kernel, up to where it hangs, maybe we can see something you're not
picking up on
