 There is a problem, I can't see this message,
message window i empty, noetebook i running continuously,
without any message too,

(Mathematica 5.1
Linux localhost 2.6.19-gentoo-r5 #10 SMP PREEMPT Tue Feb 20 21:34:30 CET 2007 i686 Intel(R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux)

top shows 0%CPU, 0%Memory

When i try MaxStepSize->0.001
thet top shows 99%CPU
and %MEM is growing up to 100% (in about 5 minutes)
and %CPU decreases to 0%

In this time I killed process ...

There is a problem with my individual installation ?

The system of equations is not difficult, without nonlinearity,
I can solve it "hand-made" , by reduction to ODE equation
by separation t/x variable

I decided to use Math because i hoped to see solution
in addition nonlinearity ...
