I am running the 2.0.30 kernel on a P133 w/32 MB of RAM.
Occasionally, this problem occurs and it does not hang the
machine or cause problems, but it also occasionally requires a
hard reboot.  It happens quite frequently (about 20 times in
the past 2 weeks), and is causing me a lot of grief as it seems
to lock up on Fridays after I go home, leaving the company
web site down and without email or ftp access for the duration
of the weekend.  Any advice or pointers to the correct FAQ
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
