I have an AMD K6-300 in an Asus P5A ATX motherboard, 64M PC100 SDRAM, ATI
Xpert98 PCI video card, Symbios 53c815 based Fast SCSI-2 card, Intel
EEPRo10/100 Ethernet card, Fujitsu 6.4M UDMA hard drive. Everything works
fine. I started using it with a Debian Linux distribution sporting the 2.0.35
Kernel. I've since compiled about 10 different versions of the 2.2 Kernel
series, from pr3 through pre7, and now 2.2.3. No faults, no crashes.
Does your system have adequate cooling ? I'm using an AOpen mid-tower case.
I added a 2nd fan in the front of the case. I'm using a Vantec heatsink/fan
with heat conductive compound between the CPU and the heatsink.
I know some older AMD K6 CPU's (or was it the K6-2?) had a bug in them that
resulted in Sig 11 errors when compiling stuff. I bought mine around November
and it has been very solid. I run Netscape, scan stuff on my Microtek SCSI
scanner, edit them in Gimp, print stuff to my DJ660, all without crashing.
