gestalt $ dmesg|grep coupling
Checking 386/387 coupling... Ok, fpu using exception 16 error reporting

This is on a virgin Hamm system running a recompiled 2.0.34 (just installed
this weekend).  I have a K6-2 300 on a shuttle motherboard.

Have you recompiled your kernel? Did you enable the fpu option? If so go back
and disable it.  Otherwise yes, you may have a hardware failure.
