After updating the BIOS and the NVIDIA drivers, my dual-AthlonMP system
(Tyan MB) has been rock solid and very fast for a couple months now. I'm
currently running 2.4.10-xfs (haven't had the guts to try anything newer
yet). I've compiled all my kernels with Debian's gcc 2.95.4, and I've
got a completely XFS+LVM system except /var, which is reiserfs. Haven't
had a single problem with XFS so far, and it made life before the above
mentioned updates tolerable :-).
