Random crashes

Hello all.

I'm using a fresh, new slack8 install, and had follow the MOSIX install steps
(www.mosix.org) over a 2.4.5 kernel. The system runs fine but it randomly
crashes after some time periods, sometimes w/ machine freezes -- i've saw almost
all oops were in kswapd. I don't really know if this can be a MOSIX-related
problem, as a pure kernel (w/o MOSIX) and 2.2 series was acting strange in my
machines (ASUS CUV4X-DLS, 2xP3 933, 512M RAM, 40G+30G IDE disks, 3C905B-TX NIC,
AHA2940 + DAT, onboard SYM53C1010-33 and Intel EPRO100 also enabled).

The kernel config file can be found at

(Maybe) other interesting info:

...changing IO-APIC physical APIC ID to 2 ... ok.
Synchronizing Arb IDs.
 IO-APIC (apicid-pin) 2-5, 2-9, 2-10, 2-11, 2-13, 2-20, 2-21, 2-22, 2-23 not

checking TSC synchronization across CPUs: passed.
Setting commenced=1, go go go
mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent fixed MTRR settings
mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent variable MTRR settings
mtrr: probably your BIOS does not setup all CPUs
