i tried to use modules with older release - the same sympthoms as yours.
later i just tried a snapshot (pre 0.6.1, e.g 20040424) and didn't used
the modules, but compiled my own kernel and all of the stuff i need as
part of it (no modules). it works for me. try the snapshot, it sounds to
be unstable, but colinux is unstable either.
