Is the a more effective method of rebooting the CPU, other than invalidating
the entire address space and causing the chip to have a seizure?

Reason I ask is that , for some reason, my dx2-66 VLB system locks up hard
when I try to do a software reboot under 2.x.  The OS halts properly (no
fsck errors on start-up), but as soon as it attempts to "cycle" the CPU, I
lock up - keyboard too - and hafta hit the reset switch.

Ctrl-Alt-Delete does not work at all, under 2.x, but does function properly
under  Dos/Windows.

System Info:  AMD dx2-66
	      VLB Trident SVGA
              VLB IDE, Buslogic BT-545 SCSI (16bit)
	      16MB SIMM
