Exclamation cheking in - with a problem on an Evo

hi everyone, just wanted to say hi from northern england and i also have a small or maybe large problem .hopefully you can tell me.
i have 2 cars at present a e36 316 and an e36 m3 evo
i drive the evo around at weekends and the last time i drove it today it came up with a exclamation triangle on the display with the number 2. this only occured when changing gear and it seems as if the clutch is disconnecting itself and having trouble reconnecting as it keeps revving without the clutch seeming to be engaged.this happens in both auto and manual.
Can anyone help?

thanks
newbie
kieran
