I had the same problem (at least it sounds the same) on my T42p when FC5
switched from the 2.6.16 kernel to 2.6.17 (I believe). A patch was dropped
from the Fedora kernel radeon drm driver that disabled it unless a certain
parameter was set.
Mike said the bug wouldn't get fixed unless people got bit by it.
The work around is to readd the patch or use the ATI driver.
Sorry I don't have more details but I'm waiting for my sushi to arrive and
I just have my Treo. I filed a bugzilla bug at the time where the
commentary and details are.
I have a Compaq EVO N800c, ATI Mobility Radeon 7500, rawhide updated
daily, that I use about 10-12 hours a day. It randomly freezes about
4-5 times a day, no time patterns. I ran memtest86 without errors.
