The systems chipset (440GX - board is is not
supported by mbmon. All I can check is the temperature of the harddrives
and they are between 30 - 45 °C. Which just means nothing for the CPUs ;)

make world for example does not break the system down - I only encounter
this during my tinderbox runs - who knows what stresses it then that much.

I'll now make a kernel with all the debugging stuff in it...
