I use Emacs 21.4.14 and Maxima 5.9.3 in fedora core 5.
Both work fine independently After adding the
instructions mentioned in the maxima web-page into the
.emacs file:
(setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.max" . maxima-mode)
auto-mode-alist))
(setq load-path (cons "/usr/share/maxima/5.9.3/emacs"
load-path ))
(autoload 'maxima "maxima" "Running Maxima
interactively" t)
(autoload 'maxima-mode "maxima" "Maxima editing mode" t)

every time I activate the maxima mode emacs freezes.

    Did you got the necessary information? I have the same
    problem. I use cvs emacs and maxima ebuild in Gentoo. It
    adds

    ;; maxima mode
    (setq load-path (cons "/usr/share/maxima/5.9.3/emacs" load-
    path))
    (autoload 'maxima-mode "maxima" "Maxima mode" t)
    (autoload 'maxima "maxima" "Maxima interactive" t)
    (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.max" . maxima-mode) auto-
    mode-alist))
    (autoload 'dbl "dbl" "Make a debugger to run lisp, maxima
    and or gdb in" t)
    (autoload 'gcl-mode "gcl" "Major mode for editing maxima
    code and interacting with debugger" t)
    (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.ma?[cx]\\'" . maxima-
    mode) auto-mode-alist))

    ;; emaxima mode
    (autoload 'emaxima-mode "emaxima" "EMaxima" t)
    (add-hook 'emaxima-mode-hook 'emaxima-mark-file-as-emaxima)

    to the site file.

    After starting emacs "M-x maxima" shows

    Loading maxima (source)...done

    and freezes. I have to C-g. A "M-x maxima" again and
    everything is fine...
