Ingo,

Well patched a clean 2.0.24 kernel last night,
approx. 11:00 PST still up and happy,
no oops's anywhere to be found.

I have run most fo the stuff I usually do & still no
problems.

AMD5k86-P90,64MB,PCI-ncr53c810,st11200n,st41200,
nec ide atapi cdrom(only thing on the ide), running
XFree86, netsc(r)ape, .... etc.

THANKS, :-)) JimL
