If you're referring to me, the laptop has been running Linux for 2 years.
It does "crash" or "hang" occasionally --
it just hung tonight when I compiled and installed 2.6.0 --
I suspect I compiled it for Pentium rather than Crusoe --
in any case I just re-booted into 2.4.23, re-compiled 2.6.0
and am running it now.

I always keep several kernels available.

Maybe I'm just lucky,
or maybe these disasters you think of are not very likely to occur.
