I was running 2.4.17-32-smp before. It just updated a debian package of
the same kernel version. I had no problems with the old one, other than
the fact that it seems to ignore cpu0. All processor time goes to cpu1
and cpu0 gets a ton of idle.

When the box crashed both times, I was checking out the cvs tree :)

Paranoia doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get you.
