Comment 1 Stephen Tweedie 2002-12-04 10:39:08 UTC
Is it always exactly the same crash?  How often does it occur?  This looks more
like hardware instability than anything else --- you should try an overnight
memtest86 run on it.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2003-12-17 02:32:50 UTC
Several errata kernels, and one year of inactivity later.. Closing.
