I have swapped the HD back to the old box. I am up and running again.
If it doesn't crash today, I can be certain the ol' grey mare needs to
be taken out back and shot. Dual PIII on a Abit server board c. 2000.
I hear that the Abit boards have issues with components.
Anyone recommend a cheap (not necessarily the latest technology) mobo
for my server? I am running a low load SoHo server here at the house.
