Okay, Got 3 Neo3 Platinum boxes on BIOS 1.B.

The two 64 bit Gentoo boxes are running clean with
2.6.9-r9 gentoo sources.  One has the dual core
upgrade and its very very nice!  Played with lots of
different kernels including gentoo-sources 2.6.14 and
vanilla-sources 2.6.14 on the single core box and they
all hang like the 2.6.12 and 2.6.13 kernels.

If I can find about 8 hours, I can probably isolate
the kernel code change(s) that causes the freeze on
this MBoard and float a patch into 2.6.14 and see if
some kernel guys can study it.

The third box is a windoze XP and it occasionally
needs the keyboard unplugged and replugged after the
BIOS starts.  This looks like a hardware issue because
it happens with BIOS 1.3, 1.8 and 1.B and occurs far
before the bootloader gets going.

I'm off to Frys because the dual core box has a stuck
chipset fan.  Might as well buy 3 replacements, one
for each board.
