Hmm. I don't recall from the original posting, is this a 64-bit
version of LInux? If not, and if you have a LOT of RAM (and
assuming you're running a 32-bit PAE kernel) you could be running
into a shortage of memory in the lower 3 gigs where the kernel keeps
important data structures when doing PAE.
