Thanks for your help.  One thing to note is that the firmware and
BIOS of the unit was upgraded to try and fix another problem and
because of this, the unit will not boot directly from the controller.
I don't think this is your problem so if anybody has any thoughts
on what path I should take on trying to get this fixed, I would be
much appreciated.

Here is the output from the console:

The unit boots find from the network.  I guess I get to see if I
can downgrade the firmware but I am not having much luck finding
previous images.
