No problem : it is fully reproduceable. I will try it
next time.

Anyway, I had a look in the bug database before
submiting this one, and I some something about "system
hang w/ ethernet driver" or something like that. I
have installed an PCMCIA card in the laptop to check
if the system is stable w/ an other driver.
Unfortunatly, it won't connect on my network : the
interface is up, no message about cable problem but
all trame are lost.
Anyway, I think it's only a configuration trouble so I
will continue my test.

There is no Virus detection on the BIOS of this
machine, but I have booted previously under M$-window
and perasp a TSR was started for this. I made an other
test after a fresh power-up, and I got this time "Hard
Disk problem" :-( I don't think it's an hardware
problem because the disk works on the other laptop,
and I can put a floppy drive in the bay and it works

Hum, yes, "dedicated one" because this disk is only
for NetBSD. Anyway, I will remake an install under a
DOS partition to see if the trouble disapeare ...
