I was going to add a PCI-X gigabit card to the older machine as the
new box has one on the mobo. I just have not got around to do it.
Also I have not powered down or rebooted the old box in 234 days so I
am just a little worried that I may have a problem booting and it is
the master backend. I remember it took some work coaxing the machine
to boot on a 400GB Seagate 7200.10 as for some weird reason the BIOS
of  the SATA card saw the drive as 2 drives and wanted to boot the
phantom drive. I do have a rescue cd somewhere that I made to avoid
this problem.
