I don't think my problem is with the hardware as the machine is only two
weeks old. I orginally had problems with the memory, but IBM replaced
the modules with improved ones and I have not had a problem since then.
Also when the memory failed the entire machine would lock and I could
not ssh to it, which I can do with my recent lockups.
