Sounds exactly like my problem, except it happens more often. I have three
other machines identically configured at work, and they exhibit the same
behavior (2 running FC 2, 1 running FC 3).
And never had the problem on any with FC 1.
I have a dual Athlon that mysteriously locks up too. I've had hardware
problems with it in the past, but I thought I had it fixed with FC1 a
while ago, but then started having lockups again when I upgraded to FC3.
I thought it was the hardware problems coming back again, but I guess
there might be an Athlon SMP bug with the FC3 kernels.
