OK, I tried today a stock 1.3.1 rescue disk on a Latitude XPi CD
and it hung while loading the md driver. I'll try compiling
a custom kernel with just the stuff I have.

Somebody else that contacted me in private mail had the same problem.
However, none of us had the problem of the computer rebooting while
loading the kernel.

See ya.
