There's no support for your ethernet card under 1.2.

If you're brave, upgrade to xeno-unstable.bk and the card should
work, otherwise wait until the 2.0 release (a week or two).

I suspect its just that you're not getting console output, and
the startup scripts are taking ages to execute because networking
is down. Try adding 'console=tty0' to the xenolinux line.
