Ah, more late-night editing. Helps to get some quick turn-arounds at least.
Apparently ADSL is soon to be offered in my area in about 4-8 weeks. I'm also expecting hell to freeze over in about 4-8 weeks.
My Abit BP6 system (non-o/c'ed, with EC10 fix and misc crap applied) isn't nearly as tolerant of kernel 2.4.0-final as the previous 2.2x series. Without warning, the kernel will panic, anywhere from within 10 minutes to 24 hours of uptime. I've grown to love iptables/netfilter however, so the board will get replaced with something a bit more tolerable.
