Makes sense and all but after installing the HDHR on the separate NIC
I rebooted several times and haven't seen the problem.  Does this
happen everytime or does it find the HDHR on some reboots?  I'd like
to know if I am "safe" or if I will have this happen down the road.
My backend is on FC6 now... what distro are you using?  I wonder if
the timing issues are distro specific or something else.
