i'd suggest a new kernel... i'm running
 YellowDog CS 1.2 on kernel 2.2.15pre20
on: BlueG3 400 DVD with 192M of RAM
netscape hasn't recently brought the entire system
down... but it has in the past when i was running
older software like a old kernel and such. try that...
if you want you can try my compiled kernel i use, it
has no support for anything besides what my comptuer
has tho... ie no floppy or anything. not sure about
modem or anything. but i turn most of the SCSI/IDE
floppy and such... only rage128 support too.
