    I've had problems under both 2.2.9 and 2.2.10, and I don't overclock.
    Also, I don't think my system is overheating (I've got a PC Power &
    Cooling "Turbo Cool" power supply and extra fans in the case). I've got
    an old 3.5" half-height Seagate Barracuda in the case, but it doesn't
    seem to be too hot if I open the case and feel it.

    I have been using "egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)" to
    compile my kernel (that's what comes with Red Hat 6.0). I've seen that
    maybe that is a problem, but right now (and I hate to say this since I
    know my problem won't get fixed this way), I just don't have time to
    "fiddle" since this is my work system, and I've lost too much time this
    month as it is having to re-install Linux. I've just stuck with 2.2.5
    compiled with egcs, since it works.

    When you work in a company that is a Microsoft Certified Solution
    Provider, Technical Education Center, and more, there is a lot of
    pressure to switch to Windows if your system has trouble and you're
    running Linux. I can't afford to have Linux fail again right now;
    someone might re-format my hard drive while I'm out of the office! :-)
