Hi folks i'm not 100% sure I'm posting on the right list so if im wrong
please disregard and direct me to the appropriate list. :)
Well I'm having a problem with USB devices causing kernel panic.
I got an external 1 TB USB hard disk in NTFS format. When I tried to save
some files (downloads from deluge) on it I get a kernel panic. Which
files/logs can I provide to help you? The system simply hangs and all
keyboard leads start to blink.  I'm using Linux  2.6.37-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT
Fri Feb 18 18:32:16 CET 2011 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor
5600+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux. It is the default arch linux kernel. If I
write a small file and move to the folder things seem to be okay. Any ideas?

Thanks for the great distro folks hope you can help me on this one.
