Thanks for the suggestion....  The power supply is just about brand new
(installed in november), but that doesn't eliminate it as a potential
cause... I'll see what else I can try this week, and if it's still
locking up, I'll probably pull the power supply out of my home
workstation and try that.  Or .. hmmm : ) one of the other developers is
having a workstation built right now.. maybe I can borrow his
tomorrow...
