I have just downloaded this new cvs tree, and it is running now on a 
pentium II/128M/PIIX and PDC2xxx both drives are maxtor.  I will let you 
know, if it does hang, I plan to try the 2.4.pre-3 patch which was 
suggested by both Scott Hoffman and Krzysztof.  

The strange thing is, the brand new test machine I built on thursday, 
(athalon 1000,512M,20G and 80G maxtor drives, via and promise 
controllers) using the install RPM from the iso distribution...is running 
like a champ.  I just checked and it has not crashed since late 
thursday.  Would it be possible for you to email me the .config for your 
default install (or tell me how to generate it from the iso image), then 
I can compare what I have turned on that the install does not.  

I am tending to think this is more a 2.4X problem than an xfs problem.  
All my machines running 2.2.16-3 (with the appropriate ide patches from 
hendrick so I can have multicount and dma on the ide drives) run my 
little stress test fine (by fine I mean if my stress test runs from Friday 
night when I go home till Monday morning when I get back).

ps..for the group:  With reguards to Seth Moss comment about the speed of 
NT...my experience has shown that pretty much a trained monkey with an 
etch-a-sketch is faster than an NT box :-)
