Hi,

welcome to LQ!

You *are* aware of the fact that the distro you're using
and the kernel in use are over 8 years old? I'm actually
impressed that it's still going. Your version has been
unsupported since January 2004, and the kernel you're
using is several versions behind the latest updates.


How does the crash manifest itself? Is it something that only
happens while you're in some GUI or does it also occur when
you're on e.g. runlevel 2?


Cheers,
Tink

Is this true for any USB port on that machine, how many do
you have? It might be faulty hardware. You also haven't
answered my question whether this happens in full-screen
console sessions as well as in X.

The computer has 2 usb ports in front and 6 usb ports in rear.
The problem happens on any port between the 8 usb ports.
The problem happens in X session
