I think it started in 2.1.103, within 2 days of running that it managed
to corrupt my / partition, after reinstalling it happened within 2 days
again, both times the ext2 super block and it's backups were all
corrupted (according to fsck anyway). I'm running 2.0 for now.

Intel TX chipset
Quantum bigfoot 2.5G HD udma
bus running at 75 MHz so maybe pci isn't doing 33 i don't know how to
check that.
no problems in 2.0.x and 2.1.81-2.1.101 (i didn't run 102 very long)
K6 233MHz underclocked at 225MHz
