Default Re: 32bit drivers on Asus K8V

Stracing the modprobe to a file was useless cause the file couldn't be written
before the machine crashed. Stracing to STDOUT showed that modprobe forked to another process and thus wasn't straced. Anyway, I straced an insmod nvidia and got some output but I don't think it is too helpful. Here it is anyway (copied by hand)...

stat64("/lib/modules/2.4.22-28mdk/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=2370358, ...}) = 0
brk(0x820e000) = 0x820e000
brk(0x8236000) = 0x8236000
brk(0x8260000) = 0x8260000
brk(0x8287000) = 0x8287000
old_mmap(NULL, 159744, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x401d2000
brk(0x824d000) = 0x824d000
create_module("nvidia", 2124832) = 0xf8935000
brk(0x8276000) = 0x8276000
old_mmap(NULL, 159744, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x401f9000
brk(0x824d000) = 0x824d000
munmap(0x401d2000, 159744) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 2125824, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x40220000

And this is where the machine hard locks.
