Thanks Barry,

I plan to stop by the building on my way home this afternoon and replace the keyboard/mouse and start a memtest86 to run the night.  That should reveal any issue.  Another thought.  I have the kernel-PAE installed with 6G of RAM.  The server still appears to only see 4G even though the server counts all 6G at startup.  Could there be an issue addressing the extra RAM?  Maybe I should drop the RAM back to 4G?
