Glad to. Installed the Sid xserver, and the Sid intel video along with
the Sid kernel....and am pleased to say that whereas my machine would lockup
regularly before (ranging from 1 minute to 30 minutes after boot) it has now been
running in X for about 4 hours smooth as glass. Earlier comments here made it look
like it was X and/or the Intel driver that were at fault, but after a couple of
hours of googling the problems...it seems it was more likely the kernel glitches
that were causing the problem.
