Eeek! That thing will be hosting the school's vle. Looks like I better 
memorize the after hours password for HP support.

What problems did you have? Do they occur mostly when the boxes are 
under high I/O load?

This is really new to me as I had no problems with a DL360 G3 box that 
ran Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 with regards to disk problems in my 
previous job.
