Linux 2.1.108/SMP
PC Chips M720 Dual Proc MB w/ 2 P2 266's
256 Megs of RAM
SMC EtherPower Eth (Tulip)
Buslogic bt-948
2 4.3 Gig SCSI hd's (queue depth 28)
1 4 gig DAT (queue depth 3)

Why can't I keep any of my machines working? Argh, every single day it's
just crash after crash after crash. It takes so damn long to write the
Oops messages that sometimes I can't wait since they are production
machines.. I had to run 2.1.x on the SMP box since 2.0.x didn't boot.
