Insant Freeze

Just upgraded to slack-current and 2.6.4.

Using both FluxBox and WindowMaker, I have intermittent complete freezes. I cannot find anyway to unfreeze the computer. The mouse pointer is locked and there seems to be no response from any key combination.

The adsl ethernet modem still seems to run however. Only solution is to hit reset.

Where would I start about diagnosing this problem? Is there a way to capture some text output from the kernel?
