I get a kernel panic that outs to kdb, sometimes I get a freeze, and

kernel successfully come up. I am quite certain it is not the memory or
the system ( I can get windblows 2k to run successfully with upto 3.5G

Here is the configuration:

Tyan S2460
Dual Athlon XP 1800
512M DDR DIMMS (also used 128, 256, and 1G)
Western Digital 20G Drive

Kernels 2.4.9, 2.4.16, 2.4.17, 2.5.2
configured for 4G
configured as 1386, 1686, and Athlon processor support
configured with XFS support
configured with kdb support
