Hi Rod,

In spite of my usual hard-headedness and initial answer, I went and
took a look at the site you mentioned.

I'll tell ya' - they'll make you think about it and take a second look.
Now I'm really uncertain whether or not to pursue their suggestions.

If I didn't have similar symptoms on two different hardware
platforms over RH 6.2, RH 6.0 and LFS 20020219, I would really be
convinced. Plus they _do_ have the upfront about it usually is
software and their discussion focuses on the hardware side.

Now, I'm just wishy-washy about it.

Anyway, wanted to say thanks for the URL and let you know you didn't
waste your time. It got the old noggin thinking about how to best
confirm my real problem.

P.S. I checked out the home page and couldn't find a link into what
looked like FAQs (the sig11 you ref'd). Any clues how to access the
general info are on their site. It looked _very_ informative.
