I've successfully booted 2.2.10 on a 5000/240 on my network at home,
including NFS root. So I think it is either 3100 related, or the result
of a busy network. The network at my office has between 1000 and 2000
systems on it (switched segments), with the NFS server on a different
segment from the DECStation.

But I'm still in doubt wether I should update my pre-build kernels on
my website. I would like to know them working on all 'supported' systems.

The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better."
I can't understand why it won't work on my Linux computer.
