I think that is the correct assumption.

Yes, those are the modules you have loaded. Plenty of candidates for
trouble there! I'm somewhat surprised to see you are using ntfs, but
the prime candidates (based on what you wrote earlier) must be pcspkr
and the sound modules. Looking at its size, nvidia must be the wrapper
for the binary module, so if you can, try without that first.
If you can narrow it down a bit, you might want to try 2.6.14.latest
(.3 is due) to see if the problem is still present. Obviously, check
the logs in case any interesting error messages show up.
