Since you're running i386, the keystrokes (assuming the OS is accepting keyboard interrupts) from a PC's keyboard are Ctrl-Alt-ESC.

You can then run a backtrace to find out where the kernel is looping. You can even take a core dump if you have sufficient swap space, and sufficient storage in /var/crash to save it on reboot.
