I've had this error-message repeatedly over the years on a laptop that
I first got early in 1995. Then it ran Slackware with a 1.2.0 kernel;
now it runs debian (slink) with a 2.0.34 or 2.0.36 kernel.

I've asked what the message means on a number of newsgroups and

When I first asked about it, the commonest response I got was along

soon.'  But that was 4 years ago, and the laptop still works fine.

Still puzzled,
