Thanks Barry,  I will keep that to look at.  I ran the HP diagnostice this morning before staff showed up.  Everything passed, but of interest was that of the four drive making up the RAID 5, three are Maxtor and one is Fujitsu.  The Maxtors finished the test and passed in 78% of expected time.  The Fujitsu finished in 109% of expected time and passed as well.  I wonder if there could be a timing issue between the drives.  It ran successfully yesterday afternoon till this morning when I did the test.  It is still running.  I changed out the last 2G of RAM.  We also downloaded the latest HP diagnostics and it found a bad drive in an identical server where the earlier version I used this morning did not find it.  I will probably run the newer one, but it takes about 45 minutes to complete all the tests.
