I'm certainly jealous.  My E4500 will only run a couple of days before 
it hangs requiring a reboot.  Sometimes it will still respond to pings 
but that's all.  Never any console messages, just a hung box.  On my 
uniprocessor sparc's (U5 and U30) is is very stable but not on the E4500 
with 8 CPU's.  It is running Gentoo with a 2.4 kernel (2.4.31 at the 
moment).
