I have experienced a similiar problem.  I did not see the crash until
I attempted to mount the device, but perhaps I just didn't wait long
enough.  According to the output to the console, there was a problem
in the usb-storage module, causing the interrupt handler to exit and a
subsequent kernel panic.

I am using fedora core kernel 2.4.22-1.2129.nptl from the fedora core
1 updates.

2138 has a bunch of USB fixes. Please give that a try.

Comment 3 tjfalcone 2004-01-12 13:41:13 UTC
I upgraded to 2138, as suggested.  There is no longer a kernel panic,
but it is still not possible to mount the memory stick.  The USB
subsystem keeps restarting (issuing the storage device a new device
number), and continues to spawn processes trying to manage the device.
 Any mount attempt freezes up (process goes into "uninteruptible
sleep").  I am not sure why usb-storage for this device, which seems
to work fine in RH 9, is causing so much trouble in Fedora.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
