I would be very interested to know if the FX5200 works for you.  I have
basically the same set up without the renicing.  I have a spare partition
on the drive so I'm considering a fresh start with FC5 to see if it fixes
it.  Luckily my backend is a seperate system and it's not really an issue,
just the single frontend in my media room.
