I've got a UP box (Blade 100), so I can't speak for SMP. Bummer about
your E4500. Noise and power consumption aside, I'd love to have one. :-)
I had the same "hangs without a trace" issue when I tried the 2.6
kernels. Sometimes the box would run for a couple weeks, sometimes just
a day or two. The end result, however, was always a mysterious hang.
