Why does this only happen on some boxes? I can pummel C-A-D
on my ancient IBM DX and all it does is beep, but the P90 next to it
reboots if you so much as brush C-A-D with your fingertips. Yet I
installed the same RH5.2 on both. Obviously a BIOS setting, but there
is nothing visible in the config to let you disable it.
