Description of Problem:
Hey guys, I'm back.  Since we last spoke I replaced the Motorola sm56 modem with a USR 5610B.  That works great so I no longer have the modem problems.  
Unfortunately the system still locks up within a few minutes despite your assurances this would no longer happen.  As you may recall, I had downloaded 2.4.9-21 
it wouldn't work with the sm56 so I just gave up for awhile and switched machines (this is written from my windows machine).  Since I got my new modem I once 
again tried my Linux box and much to my surprise and disappointment, nothing had changed.  I upgraded to 2.4.9-31 and tried semi successfully to upgrade other 
components with up2date.  Then I also upgraded netscape to 6.2.2.  The system running 2.4.9-31 locks up whether I am in netscape or up2date (or just sitting there 
for all i know).  This time around I wanted to report this immediately to you guys.  Now last time you told me I forget to tel you something basic about my problem 
would have helped.  I want to avoid that this time.  Please tell me what exactly you need.  Remember, this is an Athlon 1.33 GHz machine with 256 MB of RAM.  The 
original installation was 7.1 off CDs which I have upgraded to 2.4.9-31 using up2date. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Very - happens every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
2. wait a few minutes
3. hit computer reset button - go to 1.

Actual Results:
The system locks up completely.  No keyboard input is accepted, the on screen clock stops, etc.

Expected Results:
I expect the system to NOT lock up.

Additional Information:
This is very frustrating as my Linux machine is once again useless.  Its a nice doorstop.

Its been a couple weeks since I first posted this and I haven't received any but the automated reply.  Is my case terminal?  Can my machine be salvaged?

Any useful oops? Just a "locks up" doesn't give much to go on ;(

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
