The Tyan MP2466 was unstable with Severn, random lockups, kernel panics, root 
filesystem corruption, sometimes just a few desktop apps stopped working. Bad 
mojo, I suppose. The problems reminded me of kernel problems with Red Hat 8 
and Mandrake 8 last year. Mandrake 9.1 runs without problem on the hardware, 
so it's back to that for now.
