I removed the ide and ata setting. System is running stably as in no
kernel crashes, but I am getting daemon and shell crashes. With this
current kernel I've had 1 kernel crash in about 3 hours as compared to 1
every 10 or 15 minutes. Crash, reboot, 10 minutes or so crash, reboot. ect

I'm wanting to test something else out. I'm wondering if there isn't some
hardware issue with the RAM. This particular board will do 1GB of PC133,
or 2.5GB of PC100. I'm wondering if there isn't something wrong with how
it reads the speed and the appropriate limitation. It's running stably if
I only run 768MB of PC133 RAM. But if I run a solid 1GB of PC133 I get
segfaults and sig11 crashes constantly. All the RAM has been
professionally tested and certified.

Any clues would be appreciated.
