I got around to trying the lastest CVS version of the drivers this weekend, and I'm getting the same behaviour on my SMP box as has been reported previously.. It runs for a couple of minutes, and then kernel panic's

I've never really had to deal with a panic before, so I'm not too sure how to covert the addresses and numbers on my dead screen to something that's meaningful and might help give an idea of what/where the problem is...

However if someone wants to give me a quick dummies guide, I'm more than willing to crash the machine again and give any info I can =)
