I have it disabled in the BIOS. The only other kernel that I've been running
lately is 2.0.29. I'm not quite sure how to chase down something that usually
happens while I'm not there.
Anyone know of a way that I can "dump" the memory to a file or serial port
even after an OS dies? I seem to recall (vaguely) Linus saying something about
a card he made that he used to grab the contents of the memory even after the
kernel died. Any save that mail/article?
