Generally hard freezes are hardware issues related to interrupt 
problems. So I would look into disabling devices like network and sound 
and see if the problem continues. Also, of course try the acpi=off, 
noapic, nolapic options for the kernel.

And just so you know, I used my AGP + PCI video setup for years in 
windows, but it crashed linux like nobodies business. It was the pci 
video card.
