While I am no expert it sounds like it's hanging up at the init script /etc/rc2.d/S72inetsvc. You can try pressing stop-a to get the ok prompt, then typing boot -s to enter single user mode. From there cd to /etc/rc2.d Hand execute
./S69init start
From there do the same for each file starting with an "S" higher than S69
./S71rpc start
etc...
This will narrow down where the problem is. I'm sure someone will have a better reply soon.
