example from zd1201
this happens right after "ifconfig interface up"
Comment 3 John W. Linville 2008-01-30 13:34:38 EST
I recall a zd1201 bug from back then that caused a crash...are you using the 
lastest FC6 kernel?

FC6 is outside of its supported life.  Have you considered installing F8?
Comment 4 An. N 2008-01-30 13:43:01 EST
Another module, acx111, crashes in exactly the same manner, I thought of that as
of a rather unlikely coincidence. No crashes with 2.6.20-something, although I
can't use 2.6.20-something because it has problems with my motherboard.

The kernel is the most recent that was placed in the Yum repository, and a move
to F8 is not appealing since F9 is "around the corner".

Fedora 6 is no longer supported, you'll have to update to 7 or 8.
