I'm thinking it's BIOS related. I manually set the CPU speed in there
because it didnt list 2200Mhz. Now I'm running it at 2000Mhz and
untar'ing pkgsrc didn't make the machine crash. I remember when I
slightly overclocked the machine, it wouldnt even boot from the cd; it
would just hang. After setting it back to 'automatic settings' for the
CPU, it worked. I thought I could get away by manually setting the speed
to 2.2Ghz, but I guess that didn't work.
I'm going to try more stuff and see how long the machine stays up.
