i had that problem with a machine (i'm 97% sure it was npx0), 
and it was a 386sx.  the best answer i could find is that the
stock fpu emulator was not well.  i do have 2.1.5 running on 
many other sx's though ...  what was interesting is that by
snapping in a 387, according to my boss, the machine booted
fine!  i got advice to compile gnu's fpu emulation into
the kernel. (newsgroups)
