Well :-/  I've got my swapper setup, and I am still getting unhandled page
fault problems on my cyrix 6x86L 200+ (kernel trap type 14, code = 4830000).

It seems to occur at random, which would lead me to suspect a hardware
problem or incompatibility.  This system runs fine in Linux, so I dunno what
exactly the difference is.. 

I'm getting rather frustrated.. I've been tackling this for a few days now
with no luck.  I'm trying to cross-compile a kernel from linux with the KDB
enabled to see if I can figure anything out from that, but I've been having
a wee bit of a tricky time with that too ;-) 

Anyone have any suggestions ?  Oh, it's using ide, and I've tried removing
all non-critical cards.
