SubjectRe: 2.4.20 kernel crashes while scanning partition list
From
I ran your oops log through ksymoops, doesn't look like you made an 
error writing it down :)

I have no clue what is going on, though - I'm just attaching it and see
if the list can make any sense of it.

Attached (ksymoops.log) is the aforementioned file

Regards
Josh
