I'm wondering if any of you know what could be going on when Linux
reports "idle may not sleep" a few times and then proceeds to lock up
hard. I have not seen this problem and I suspect it may be hardware

This is on one of our machines that has Red Hat 5.0. This happens during
install after the kernel (2.0.32) has booted.
