Thanks -- yes I will try that --  was wondering if anyone else knows of any 
similar problems..
I have tried searching freebsd documentation but cannot find anything -- ah 
well maybe the upgrade will do it. If I find enything from memtest I will 
post it here.

Thanks for your input - it is appreciated.
