Eric Biederman has been working on 'kexec', which is a fast
reboot (Linux boots Linux). See
http://www.xmission.com/~ebiederm/files/kexec/
and
http://developer.osdl.org/%7Eandyp/kexec/
for some 2.5.[67]x versions. I'm trying to update it to
2.6.0-test3 and make it reboot successfully on my dual P4
machine. Currently it hangs during the reboot.
