I don't remember seeing any reports about problems like that. Is your 
setup unusual in any way? Are keyboard and mouse USB or PS2? Can you 
install SSH on this machine, boot 2.6.18, login from another machine 
an see if there is anything interesting in dmesg? Especially valuable 
would be a comparison of working 2.6.16 and 2.6.18 dmesg's side by
