Hard Lock Up of system with FC 1

Hi all,

I have recently(6 days) installed Fedora Core 1 and was using xcdroast
to cut a few Fedora CD's for my friends do my good deed of the week. The
only problem is xcdroast hard locked my system 3 times. I am pretty sure
it was xcdroast as that and evolution was open 2 times when it happened
and 3rd time xcdroast and gnome-terminal nothing else.

Seeing in /var/log/messages I see 

Nov 11 16:01:18 HellInc modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module

This is around the time the hard lock up happened not sure though so I
googled and lo and behold the first link is some problem with
char-major-97 and xcdroast.

[URL wrapped]

So put in an 
alias char-major-97 off 
in modules.conf dunno if that is going to help or not.

Now I also see 

Nov 11 17:05:18 HellInc modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module

First off where do I get this list as to what the heck is all the
numerous char-major-*** for???

I had originally sent this mail Tuesday evening but it seems my machine
froze up the moment I used xscreensaver to lock the screen after hitting
send. This time xcdroast was NOT open.

How can I diagnose what the *&*^ is going on here?

If anybody is interested /var/log/messages has been put up here


Thanks in advance,

Arindam Dey
