This is probably due to the RTC not working -- another known problem on
Basically, the kernel has no idea what the time is at boot. But once you
set the time, it should keep time until you shutdown. The best way around
the fsck problem is to boot a 2.2 kernel and disable timestamp based fsck
on each filesystem with
tune2fs -i 0 /dev/sdaN
then (given a working NIC), configure ntp so as to set the time at boot.

Like many of your earlier crashes (those that died in an interrupt handler
with macii_interrupt in the trace) this crash looks an awful lot like the

Can't explain that hang either. I'll try to reproduce it on the weekend.
