    Update: Underclocked from 1.8G to 1.2G (whups, meant to go down only
    2-300mhz) and its been vaguely stable for about 1.5 days. I don't have
    another week (yet..) to run it under its normal load and wait for a
    crash, so what I'm going to do is:
    - Move the workload (web/mail/..) to a different machine so this one
    can be down for an extended period
    - Replace the ram with new sticks (they arrived this morning)
    - Reclock everything to stock (1.83G cpu, 200mhz ram and verify the
    timings from kingston)
    - Replace the video card
    - Memtest86 until it cries
    - If it passes, bonnie++ on the new drives
    - If that passes, usb/acpi/apic testing with the associated patches

    Anyone still watching this? Tips and suggestions on what else might be
    useful/informative are more than welcome. The tests above mostly
    replicate what I did when building this box, and it passed them then..

    Epox 8rda+ nforce2 mobo
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton) 1.83G
    Kingston HyperX PC3200
    WD Caviar WD1200JB 8M/UDMA100
    Antec case w/ 350W AMD-certified PSU

    Oopses and occasional hangs, usually in do_generic_file_read, using
    stock 2.4.2x kernels. Hardware passed testing (memtest86,
    bonnie++) before I put Linux on it.
