This one had been fine with BETA5 ? No "hangs" etc?

There are wellknown problems with this chipset on ASUS K8V SE Deluxe
baords. See PRs/amd64 mailing list archive.

If this is an ASUS board - you didn't do a BIOS update lately ?
I had exacty the same probs with 1004sd going back to 1003sd fixed

thinking of nic firmware).
