UPDATE: Ok, it looks like I'm just a loser and the machine wasn't getting enough airflow. It has recently become warm and humid here in Nebraska, and combined with low airflow, it looks like that was enough to make it unstable. I'm keeping an eye on it this weekend, but I think that was the issue. It doesn't matter how many case fans you install, if you block them with magazines.
UPDATE: Looks like I spoke too soon. I'm still having problems. Damn sissy Intel processors can't stand a little overclocking. I drive a broken Ford Festiva with a 134k miles that handles a 150 mi daily commute at ~85 mph just fine and I can't run a ppro180 at 200. When is that damn Sparc going to get here?
FINAL: Does anyone have a PPro 200 with 1mb cache they'd care to donate? After adding another case fan, ripping out all of the RAM and putting in 64mb of ECC Parity RAM (pirated from the RS6k box I've been building) and backing the processor down to 180, it's been stable for awhile now. Just in case, I set it to not drop into ddb on a kernel panic. Ugh.
