OK, just for the record, I have upgraded 3 more machines to CentOS5.2
- a P4 Compaq D51S - new kernel runs OK
- a PII Compaq Deskpro EN - new kernel runs OK
- another 2*PIII Compaq ProLiant 3000 server - kernel crashes (somewhat expected, as the machine
is almost identical to that I initially reported)
