I am unable to so much as boot from the release DVD on my machine.

The machine is a model MacBookPro5,1 with 2.93 GHz Intel Core2 Duo "Penryn". Holds 4GB of RAM.

I am at a loss for what I can provide. The boot menu freezes if I select an option and it does not count down. However, if I leave it for some time, it will attempt to boot, but only gets a short way before permanently stalling.

A linked photo displays where the console output is at the time of the hang.
