Heh, I just built Riff (the latest incarnation) about 2 months ago... BP6 based
dual celeron, 192MB RAM, etc, etc. And Im not hooking anything into PCI slot 3, the
"evil" slot on the BP6.

Riff had been working fine for quite awhile... until I tried to hook his
counterpart, Torg, up in a local network about 4 days ago.  Then the bus resets
started.... then yesterday the sound died...

Yup, just might be time to play with Mandrake (I'd love to try Debian, but is it
even 2.2 based yet?).

I dunno what I screwed up... two totally separate things start going nuts... oh
