Hi Mike, FWIW, I have the same chip, AMD64 Athlon 3200+. I use the K8 kernel
image when running a 64bit kernel but I have always used a 686 kernel image
for 32 bit so I use 2.6.18-4-686 and not 2.6.18-4-k7. The description of
the K7 kernel is: "2.6.18 on 32bit AMD Duron/Athlon/AthlonXP machines." but
you are using a 64bit chip (albeit in 32bit mode). Maybe trying the
2.6.18-4-686 linux-image package will solve your problems.
