I've read about the potential problems with the BP6 in this list and
elsewhere - but we've used a BP6 (with two Celeron 466s) since about that
time (about six months?) with neither crash nor lockup. I had the feeling
that the instability might have had something to do with the UDMA66
controller, so haven't touched that part yet.
