I tried updating to 2.6.1-1-686 kernel  and it causes my machines (IBM
R40 thinkpad and an old Acer 8400) to hang so i have to roll it back to
2.6.10-5-386.  It stopped hanging when I did so. I have installed ubuntu
in these machines not more than 2 weeks.

I tried ssh to these machines while they freeze to see whats wrong,
hoping twas only xserver, but i can't get in. BTW i install XFCE4 on
both ubuntu machine in-case gnome caused the hanging but it also hanged
during my xfce session.

So i believe this isnt just a smp specific problem, though i can figure
out what is wrong.  May I also add that I use to run debian in both
machines ussing 2.6.11-1-686 kernel.
