In one x terminal, monitor your log real time
[phil@uilleann phil]$ su -
[root@uilleann root]# tail -f /var/log/messages
Mount a cd in /mnt/cdrom1 and see if you can spot something before it locks.

I used Redhat 9.0 for 3 days and went back to 7.3. It would be locked up when I woke up in the mornings and I never could find out what it was.

I would submit a bug report to Redhat's bug reporting site on it. Something is certainly screwy. I think you have it configured right. I don't know why anaconda (the install) or kudzu (the hardware boot probe/configure tool) didn't pick it up and configure it correctly.

I think the latest greatest release is always buggy at first.

I have had the least bugs with my Gentoo distro, even though it is more bleedin' edge than the distros.

I always wait a couple of releases and lurk the bbs about them before I try them. I thought I would give the latest rh and drake and quickly went back to the working ones.

I really think it's a bug in the kernel. I have the same problem. When I try to mount it hangs the whole system. Even the sysrq+alt+b key does not work.
Any help out threre?
