It's odd to have xinetd freeze on you on boot up. Inetd is the internet superserver for a linux system, it listens for incomming connections on different ports and executes the proper program (daemon) to accept the connection.

The only way I can see Xinetd freezing is if your system is having trouble bringing up it's network interface. Like everything else in the linux bootup screen, if you leave it long enough, it will fail the start of xinetd and continue on with the bootup. It may seem like a long time, but it will by-pass and continue. When you finally do boot into your system, log in as root and run "ifconfig" and see if your eth0 interface is up. Your network may not be configured right. What distro were you running again?
