Right. It appears to be locking up without generating any kind of error. Well, I'm thinking more and more that I should just go ahead and buy a new motherboard and pray that fixes things. My NIC card is out now, anyway, so downloading a new distro isn't feasible until I get it replaced. I figure it might be a good idea to just go ahead and get a new mobo/CPU with integrated ethernet (The Asus A7N8X is looking mighty sweet...).
Until then, could you point me to either some of the configuration files for gnome (or KDE), or another window manager that I could try?
