Bug#394608: linux-image-2.6-686: the system halts on boot with 2.6.17 - 686 only
the system halts during boot, most often during attempt to detect
in the rare cases the boot process passes this hop, it finally hangs
when hald is been actived.
this happens only with the 2.6.17 kernel, in the 686 flavour. 486 works ok.
