On my ubuntu system (the one that doesn't crash) 

hendrik@april:~$ dmesg | grep -i aperture
[    0.000000] Checking aperture...
[    0.000000] CPU 0: aperture @ 0 size 32 MB

hat's on my Ubuntu system, which does not freeze.
Will try etch (same machine, dual boot) when I get the chance.

By the way, how does one change the aperture size?  Or is it 

I have nvidia graphic chips on the motherboard.  I get crashes in etch 
but not in dapper.  Can't try etch right now because I have several 
users on the system.  Will try tomorrow.
