I also see that I get a critical sectioning error preventing fatfs.nlm
process error. I upgrade the machine bios to the latest from HP. Did
not check the RAID yet.

This was a 5.1 server that may have been created during the Compaq boot
drive from smartsys error timeframe. I am not certain.

Did not do a checkdsk on the dos boot drive. Will try that.

I know if we had a coredump.image file and the c driver and deleted it
from a workstation via dosfat.nss, it could create a problem that chkdsk
repaired. I will check this.

Any other thoughts??????
