Ok. That locked up in the same way unfortunately :-/
Also a 2.4.8-pre1-xfs that I just tried...
I tried the "noapic" option as suggested in another email and that
didn't change anything either.

We've moved all the disks and controllers to a BX m/b machine for now, but
if there's anything else you want us to be guinea pigs for them we'll be
happy to try it out on the VIA Pro266 machine.
One other odd thing is that I have yet to make the CUV266 board see any
devices on its built-in secondary IDE controller. I have no idea why that
could be... The BIOS just doesn't detect them. Might that be a related
problem? Perhaps it's a faulty motherboard? Seems unlikely.
