Thanks for your reply. OK, I changed my sources.list to unstable

Thanks for typing in the whole mess.
This looks like a bug that was recently fixed:
What should I do?
First, run "reportbug kernel-image-2.6.10-1-32".
Secondly, you can try a bleeding edge kernel from here:
One week later and I've finally had the chance to put your advice
into practice. As you said, the bleeding edge kernel did not work.
I ran "reportbug kernel-image-2.6.10-1-32", but this added a report
to the local mail queue and I don't yet know how to configure exim
(postfix is my weapon of choice).
In short, I replaced the original HDD with a 9.1 GB Seagate drive and
this seems to have cured the problem. My C240 has now been solid for
2 days with the stock 2.6.8-2-32 kernel, so I'm a happy chap :-)
