The hang was caused by plugging in a usb keychain while running 2.4.20-8. I have had my workstation at work hang for some unknown reason, but then it doesn't have a SB Live! card in it since the available SB Live! card refused to work. I know all about the VIA 686x southbridge issues. I had a Abit KT7A-RAID(PoS) and had no end of problems with it. I never did see corruption, but then I ran my hard drives off the Highpoint controllers and my cdrom drives off the VIA controllers. It might have been made worse by the SB Live! card, but I doubt it. Now I have a MSI KT3-Ultra2 which I have been very happy with when in comes to stability. Personally I think SB Live! cards rule over onboard audio for two reasons. One, multiple wav streams at once without crappy software like esd or arts. Two, good drivers, unlike the only work half the time drivers for onboard audio.
