Problem fixed. Either corrupt memory or the motherboard not handling the
top 128M correctly. Added mem=127M to lilo and now I can both compile gcc
without problems and network operation is back to normal. What must have
been occurring is when copying large files some buffer code (file/net?) was
hitting the "bad" memory area. Won't bother to investigate exact cause
since I plan to upgrade to an AMD 760MPX motherboard in the next couple of
weeks. Can't wait to see how the Osicom reacts to that....
