It should, assuming that there's some attempt to handle the checks, IIRC
(been a long while since I looked at that bit of the code).

It may not have been the RAM, but that tends to be it in most cases.

Well, after running the PWS for a while now, I'm not seeing any machine checks being logged at all. It seems odd, considering the checks made Debian unusable.

Also checked what sort of memory Crucial are shipping, seems to be a little slower than (what most people consider) spec at 66MHz. Wonder if this has anything to do with it?
