Nice way to crash a 1.99.5 kernel, works every time (on more than just my
machine)

First, find your linux boot floppy.

# mount -t minix /dev/fd0 /mnt
# cd /mnt
# rm vmlinuz

Complete system hang at this point. Obviously not something we want to happen,
no? Oddly enough you can delete some files, but not others; I haven't really
time to figure out whats going wrong - all I can get out of the machine
is the register dump, which tells me the routine it is stuck in is
V1_trunc_indirect

it appears to loop around this
V1_trunc_indirect+88

but I can't tell you a lot more, its not easy trying to dump lots of register
thingies and writing them all down.

Virtual consoles still appear to work, oddly enough.
