good call - I forgot about that one.
I reckon my secondary problem is the network as it does hang with the
last message to do with the 3COM (2nd) network card (on 686-smp and 386
kernel, with noapic)
But why that should hang the system I do not know, unless we are back to
the APIC and "bad" interrupt sharing. (I'll pull that card out tomorrow)
I'll fiddle more tomorrow - thanks,
