Hi jean-luc, the problem is that when i plug an usb disk the system doesn't boot correctly, grub gives me an error 21 and anything more happens. The messages are "Error 17" or "Error 21" from grub, and i have an initrd image and use an stock kernel-image 2.6.17-amd64-k8 for an amd64.

Sometimes i can fix it, booting with a knoppix, rewriting /boot/grub/menu.lst and changing sdc1 for sda1 but sometimes that doesn't even work. It's very strange. So i can figure that the problem relies on the detection of hardware in an early stage but i cannot find the source of the problem.

Thanx for your attention.
