SubjectRe: [ACPI] acpi problem with nforce motherboards and ethernet
I have the same problem.  I "solved" it a while ago by mucking with the 
AGP stuff. IIRC, it was turning off AGP fast writes or 8x or something
similar in cmos. Went from incredibly broken to stable instantly. I'll
check my cmos settings in a bit and refresh my memory.

What patches are you using?

p.s. reiserfs is pretty useless against crashes. hundreds of files
around the harddrive get messed up everytime the machine locks
up...files that haven't been used in weeks, as well as files opened
read-only, i.e. libraries.
