Somebody adviced me to loop kernel compilation.
It turned out, that the machine had defect hardware (memory),
because compilation was giving errors at RANDOM places.
2. I had no other crush cases with Linux. (Well, when I was a newbie,
sometimes I pressed RESET without trying to think of something better.
Ms Win customs die hard :-)
I dont have applixware, but Wine (when I used it), never crushed
It is interesting to note, that even after crushing due to bad memory,
Linux continued to receive pings correctly!
