Computer keeps hanging


I am having problems with my machine, it keeps hanging. First I thought
it was the graphics card, an ATI card using the ATI driver. I upgraded
from Sarge to Etch, then switched to an Nvidia card, both with the
Nvidia and ATI drivers.

Today I managed to capture the crash message, by watching the syslog
from a remote terminal. This is the crash message, at least the end of
it (the rest got lost in the scrollback, when I tried capturing it, but
I did take some photos of it with my digital camera in case there is
something I need to reproduce:

I am using a stock kernel from Debian:

Linux version 2.6.17-2-k7 (Debian 2.6.17-9) (waldi@debian.org) (gcc version 4.1.2 20060901 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-13)) #1 SMP Wed Sep 13 17:18:46 UTC 2006

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem might be? Should I file a kernel bug?
