  At the moment, the kernel 2.4.9-13SGI_XFS_1.0.2enterprise is running.
But the problem is not with this kernel specifically (in case you are
wondering). I can get by without the XFS-Support and use a vanilla 2.4.18,
2.4.9 or even 2.4.7-kernel, but this does not help, either.

  Yes, and this is exactly why I am wondering. I have done a memory test
with the Dell utilities, but this does not report any errors.
