See... That's the first card that I bought and when I brought it home 
and plugged it up, it worked for about 30 minutes, then it stopped for 
no apparent reason (but apparently there WAS a reason it stopped and I 
couldn't figure out what it was). I have an idea... I'm going to remove 
(backup) my configs, shutdown my front end, swap out the cards and try 
this simple solution you suggest... I'll post back shortly with the results.
