I've been collecting some data on this problem, or at least a related
problem.  I've had trouble on both P75 and 486DX2-66 machines, to date. 
It doesn't appear that MFS is really the culprit at all; it might be a
catalyst, but I'm having occasional reboot problems on machines that never
used MFS, as well.  By occasional, I mean ever third or fourth reboot,
which for the machines in question is about once every 10 days.  It's
quite puzzling...
