Linux problem

I have a unique problem with one of my linux boxes . The machine gets reset(not shutdown) automatically after some time , some times even during booting . I have tried redhat 7.1 and 7.2 with 2.4 kernels and and slack ware with 2.2.19 .
I disabled almost all features in the bios and the result is the same . Logged all kernel,boot and daemon events using syslog , but the logs doesnt show anything abnormal .Even tried barebone floppy based linux and floppy based bsd . The result is the same , the system gets reset after some time or freeze .
Its a p2 350 with apollo chipset . I am trying lkcd from sgi now as a last resort . Any ideas? (Windows works fine)
I have tried memory test utilities like memtest and memory doesnt show any damage and changed the sdram module slots .No difference
Balu .

I had this experience with 7.1 on a laptop and after some testing determined it was the system board. I replaced it and it works fine now. So, you might check your board.

also linus, alan cox are aware of the quirks with the apollo so you might want to upgrade to the absolute latest 2.4.x kernel and run menuconfig to see if they have offered a workaround.

Barebone CF-S968 rebooting problem after slack 9 install

I've had the same problem with a Mini barebone system: CF-S968 (e-cube) and Slack 9.0 (2.4.20)

I hate to say it but W2k works, slack install works fine... On the first reboot after the installation, I get 75 seconds of joy then it reboots without warning...

Here is the HW info:

Intel chipset 82845?
Intel video 82845GE

any suggestions?
