Since you are running CentOS 3 I am assuming this server has been in
production for some time. Did these symptoms just start?
Did you do any updates before this started happening?
Did you install this equipment, or did you assume admin duties from someone
else? Maybe it had the HP net driver installed, and a kernel update broke that.
