Also known as the mem=nopentium bugfix.

So your AMD system keeps locking up, why not try to fix it:

Lilo users:

set "mem=nopentium" like this:

vim /etc/lilo.conf (use any editor you like - I like vim)

Code:
image=/boot/vmlinuz
        label=linux
        root=/dev/hda1
        initrd=/boot/initrd.img
        read-only
        append="mem=nopentium"
if you already have something in the append line, just separate with a space.

Grub users:

set "mem=nopentium" like this:

vim /boot/grub/menu.lst (use any editor you like - I like vim)

Code:
title=Linux
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 mem=nopentium
Now reboot and enjoy crashfree computing once again.
