Thanks for the mail..This is the present kernel...
  I have tried other kernels in other distros but all fail
apart from Libranet...They fail no matter which desktop I use
although as I said memtest will run all night as will seti from
a normal terminal..I have swapped the vid card over with my other box
which I know is ok but did not make any difference neither did moving
over the memory chips...I have also tried recompiling the kernel
as near as I can to the Libranet kernel but that failed too..
Another odd thing is I get the same results from a live distro..
Tried Mepis live and Ubuntu live but both freeze if I clear mail
messages too fast...
