Hi Jeff,

I have the exact same symptoms on my PII SMP, 440BX chipset machine, and
I believe it started around version 2.4.6 as you say. Prior to that, my
machine would reboot randomly without warning. The latest kernel that
neither reboots nor locks up is 2.4.0-test9. Sometimes it takes two
hours, sometimes it takes two days, sometimes it takes longer.

The machine just freezes solid, nothing appears on the console, sysrq
won't work, leds won't blink, and I suspect the CPUs are spinning (I can
hear the CPU fans pick up speed, when it happens). The lockups don't
seem to have any relation to what the machine is doing at the time. An
idle machine seems to lock up just as readily as a busy one.
