It was a last ditch effort.  I thought I would try something a lot beefier 
than my other hardware.  I have 6 Lex Systems CV860A units - 4 with the VIA 
C3 800 MHz processor and Realtek NICs, and 2 with the VIA C3 1GHz processor 
and Intel NICs - they all run with 256-512 MB ram, and 128 MB CF cards.  I 
have tried different brands of CF cards (ie. Lexar, SanDisk Ultra, Centrios) 
and different ram as well.  All of these froze.  3 of them are currently 
running fine with 1.22 in different installations.  I sure would like to use 
one of those, it is a waste of a good PowerEdge.  haha
