mem=nopentium was *NOT* a workaround for this problem. it might change
when it occurs, but it does nothing to prevent it, according to amd

i'd suggest using 2.4.19 which has a decent workaround in place instead,
and staying with it, until nvidia's (or others) drivers support the
page-marking api that will be in 2.4.20
