That is most likely to be a thermal problem.  Once I had a PCMCIA
network card that stopped working after 30 minutes in a particular
room of the house -- it turned out that the temperature was a bit
higher there, and the cooling just could not cope with it.

Ask the list, I have only been using linux on pbooks for a week ;-) I
don't think the message you sent me was sent to the list, so maybe you
should resend it because they could help you better.

No, it is not necessary that failures occur at boot time.  Did you
have this problem before putting in that brand new memory?


PS.: I suggest that we continue on the list, so I sent this message
there too.
