      Hello. Running Suse 8.1 on a Dell Inspiron 8000. Sometimes when playing
      mpg video the machine hangs and I am forced to do a hard reboot. Can't
      even switch to a terminal to gracefully shut down.

      Display is Dell 128 Mobility MF. My XFree86 file is included below.

      Any advice appreciated.
