Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.15-27-686

I have a problem with the kernel in ubuntu 6.06. When I have my USB-
stick attached, it just hangs at boot. This is not a very severe
problem, because it does boot correctly when the usb-stick is not
attached, and it seems to be only on coldboots on which the system
hangs, so if I restart the system with it attached, it uses to work, or
if I push the reset button when it has hanged, it will also work.
Pressing ctrl-alt-del wont work. At least this is what happened when I
just tried to test the problem a bit today, maybe it has been so that it
has hanged even on restarts sometimes, I don't really remember that.

This is what it says before it hangs:Booting 'Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-27-686'
root (hd0,4)
  Filesystem typ ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-27-686 root=/dev/sda5
  [Linuz-bzimage, setup = 0x1c00, size=0x1170433]
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-27-686
  [Linux-initrd @0x1f948000,0x6a78b3 bytes]
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel

And then it just waits there forever.
My system:
ASUS P4C800 Motherboard, P4 2.8 GHz, 2x 512 mb Corsair memory
Seagate ST3120023AS harddisk, SATA 120gb
Nvidia GeForce 4Mx graphics card
Logitech Cordless keyboard, attached to usb
ps2 mouse
Plextor cd-writer
samsung dvd-reader

I was before a bit used to dealing with the kernel stuff, to the degree
that I used to compile my own kernels and things like that, so if you
want me to test things like that, I probably knows how to do that.
