Oh. Sorry. Forgot... :)

The whole system crashes. Even the magic sysrq doesn't work. I have to
use the reset button.

I don't see anything in XFree86.0.log, the system crashes before
anything gets written on disk.

It's not a nForce2 chipset. It's an Intel 845G.

Do you have any idea when .22 is released? Will you include the new alsa
