Pre2.0.8 spontaneous reboots?

On our Linux server, we are having a problem with the pre2.0.8 kernel
producing random reboots. It's not the system, as it behaves properly
under pre2.0.7, so does anyone know of any changes that could cause it?
I'm not using any improper hardware drivers, the configs are the same.
Please let me know if anyone knows what's going on. It is going to be
set up as a mail server, and this won't cut it. I've gone back to pl7
for now, hopefully pre2.0.9 won't have this bug (whatever it is). Thanks
for any feedback.

Win95 isn't the problem - OS/2 and DOS are. Win95 is the answer.

Linux is the answer to the same problem.
