Hi. I don't know about 2.0.24 being unstable (I'm using it with some
hashed in patches for 6x86 stuff), it works perfectly for me. I don't
think it's your chip, either. I'm using a 6x86 P150+ with a Tyan Titan
III and it rocks. Very stable, very powerful. It could be BIOS settings
or something else. This is just my $0.02.

Hope you get it figured out,
