How old is the K6, and how much RAM do you have Rick?
Some K6s made before a certain week this year had some trouble
with >32mb of RAM that could cause problems like this. I have 64mb
and mine seems fine; I think the magic date was some time in September.
I have my 166 overclocked to 180.

Also regarding the ret thing --- I think that's because something
went wrong earlier just as it died, and when you remake it doesn't
think it needs to recompile that module because it is partially done.
Hence you have to make clean and start over in that case.
