I have been having the strangest problem booting Linux lately, since the late
1.3.80's. The kernel boots, init begins, mounts all drives, runs through rc.M,
and locks up after the CD-ROM is mounted, which is before rc.inet1 starts.

This lockup occurs every so often and is unpredictable in its occurance. I
have kernel 2.0.6, libc 5.2.18, init 2.64, etc. (everything being the latest

My hardware consists of the following: ASUS TP4XE 100 Mhz Pentium, 256k PB
Cache, 48Meg, linux on a 1.2 EIDE drive by itself.

I am at my wits end, any ideas.
