I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I think I had my AMD Athlon 
machine rebooting itself on random occasions. This was netbsd-2.0 and 
the kernel and userland it was running was compiled with 
'-mcpu=pentium'. I did 'cvs checkout -P -rnetbsd-2 src' to get the 
latest fixes going into upcoming 2.0.1 and rebuilt everything without 
any -mcpu options. Since then, everything has been rock solid.
