Could you feed these oopeses through ksymoops?

I'm now running vmware 24h/day with linux and win98 as guest, doing
network transfers between host and guest, and I did not noticed any problems.

It worked fine with 2.4.5-ac24 from wednesday to sunday, and yesterday
I upgraded to 2.4.6-ac2, and it still works. Kernel compiled with
Debian's gcc-3.0-3 or gcc-3.0-4, Asus A7V, KT133, 1GHz Athlon, and
Chaintech 6BTM, 440BX, 300MHz Celeron... I did not tested Linus's kernel
for more than 6 months now, so I cannot tell whether it works with Linus's
2.4.6, or not...
Best regards,
Petr Vandrovec
