Some lancewood MotherBoards are buggy ,
depending on the Firware/Hardware revision.

Symptom is : plugging a PCI card on slot 5 or 6 totally freeze the
machine after some time.

(Our L440 had a 100 Mbit/s 3com CARD , and the freeze was
everyday... before I figure it was an hardware problem)

Solution :
1) Don't plug anything there :)
2) an updated bios enable a workaround (but I imagine , at a
performance price)

You can have all the info on intel web site. (PDF describing the problem)
