Interestingly enough DMA hardware problems don't necessarily show up with
MSDOG or Windogs but they are very disturbing with Linux. Linux makes it
possible to have several things running simultaneously which rarely
happens with DOS/Win. However if there are random resets or complete
lockups under DOS, there is propably something wrong on your hardware.
