2650 + new BIOS + 2.6.10-ac11 and it *still* crashes

Since Joe Gooch mentions the heat sink he added, if it crashes again,
trying putting one on.  Maybe some i960s get too hot.

Since it's happening on multiple machines, I'm guessing it's not broken
hardware.  We've been pounding on 2.6.11 with apci=off (thanks, Gunther!)
all morning and it's still up.  We can't reproduce the crashes at will so
we'll wait a week before declaring victory.  Weekly full backups involving
lots of of data usually crash it; I ran one this morning and it survived so
I'm hopeful!
