I have problems with both Linux Mint and Kubuntu 8.10. Installation from Windows finishes successfully. After I boot to the Linux, everything seems working fine until I start downloading higher volumes of data (updates). At some point my USB mouse freezes (light remains on, but no response) and my network dies (eth0 still keeps it's assigned IP, but connectivity is lost, restart of networking is not helpful). I suspect this problem is caused by nForce3 chipset, but I was not able to find clear solution on any of forums. Can somebody shed some light on what to try to get rid of the problem? I am rather complete linux noob
. Thanks for any hints.
