After a reboot from my initial install (had to lilo an *SMP* kernel)
I was up 11 days without a glitch before I brought the system down to
repartition the drive. (This was finishing all the installs, upgrading
Debian a version via FTP, eveything!) The next day I had some weirness
because of my screwing some things up after the partitioning. After I fixed
that I've been up ever since (4 days) running a god awful amount of stuff
and starting stopping X for admin. I am running some 'scary' hardware:
DPT scsi, dual pentiums, unmatched simms on a Tyan board, 3com 900XL.

2.0.30 is hardly falling apart.

Just look at it this way...not matter how bad Linux can get, it's still
better the a 'stable' version of NT.
