Description of problem:
I am using upgraded kernel 2.4.9-21 on my PIII 800MHz 256MB RAM 40GB
machine(custom made by me). While playing a mpeg-1 movie using "mtv" program by 
mpegTV, the screen froze and keyboard & mouse stopped responding. There was not 
hard disk activity in LED. I tried to telnet this computer from another computer
(My home LAN). That too did not work. Looked like the computer has halted.

I have been using RedHat since 5.2 and used all the kernels on my computer. 
Never found such death. Earlier Screens used to lock but telnet never failed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try
