  Just a note, But I've encountered this problem on several motherboards
and laptops with FC3 where the CPU fan is turned off, causing overtemp
and shutdown.  This happens when using the FC3 installed kernel image.

  This is not isolated to Semperon, one of the systems was a Pentium-3.

  Rebuilding the kernel (stock from after clearing all FC3
kernel settings) resolved it.

  I never reported because I didn't think anybody would believe me...
