I can report the same problem with the latest Dapper install. I have a Dell Latitude D620 with Centrino Duo, IPW3945 and Intel GMA 950.
Since I updated to kernel 2.6.15-23 the kernel very often (not always) freezes on booting. It happens during the GDM is beeing started. No chance to change to console. After rebooting the old kernel I was not able to find any informations about the problem in the logs.
I've checked the bug list and found this one. So I disabled IRDA in the BIOS and now it doesn't crashes on boot anymore. So this workaround seems to work for now, but without IRDA ...

HTH, Eddie
