Subjectreboots during kernel boot
I'm having a strange problem with the kernel; sometimes, after loading
(before booting) the kernel the system will just reboot. I compiled
2.1.86 earlier today; I rebooted from my previous 2.1.72 into 2.1.86
and it worked fine. Tonight I switch the PC on, boot direct to 2.1.86,
it just reboots. Did this twice. My 2.1.72 has never done this since
I installed it:

Linux hamishpc 2.1.72 #2 Sat Dec 27 00:46:02 EST 1997 i586 unknown

Worse yet some of the 2.0.x kernels do it too. Debian's
precompiled 2.0.29 and 2.0.30 both did this when I tried them. I was using
a 2.0.29 rescue disk the other day though and it worked fine, except
once when it did the reboot. SYSLINUX 1.30 was the loader. LILO 20
used on the hard drive, booting from the NT loader (4.00) using BOOTPART 2.0.

I've had this motherboard for over a year and it works fine. I changed
the CPU from a Cyrix 6x86 (v2.6) 133MHz to an AMD K6 (which the kernel
says is post-bug) 166MHz, but that was about last September and I haven't
really noticed the connection. Nothing else has changed hardware wise.

Any suggestions, even on how to get more details? Please email me directly.
