    I have a 486SX/33 AMD for 3 years now its never rebooted like it should, not
    even with 1.0.9, i never found one kernel which it rebooted properly, the
    1.2.x series i patched every patch, and tryed most kernels, not one rebooted
    properly, same symtom as Toni described.

    I now have also a 486/100 AMD Toni, it reboots fine. But it would be nice to
    find out why, the old 486SX/33 runs standalone now, so i cant reboot via
    remote.
