First remove any unnecessary drivers from the kernel.  So, make sure
you don't have VMware drivers, or proprietary nvidia/ati drivers, or
TV tuner card drivers, etc.  Then, ensure your network card driver is
stable.  Unload any ndiswrapper modules, etc.  Then, see if you still
reach the same points.

You can grep around for "oops" or "aieee" to see if the kernel is
encountering any unstable conditions....
