Hi Matt & Steve -

Thanks for quick reply.  I was happily surprised when I got into 
work this morning.  

Well, to answer some of your questions, yes, I did upgrade the 
kernel-sources to 2.4.9-34, yes, the esm is version 5.24, but no
on the bios.  Currently, it's version a05, which I'm assuming
was factory installed.  Can't get to NTT until next week, so
when I do upgrade the BIOS, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Anyways, last night thinking that the drivers might 
not have been rebuilt properly I uninstalled and then reinstalled
dellomsa-drivers-4.51-3417, dellomsa-4.51-3417, but no such luck.

Also, the current location of the esm.o driver for 2.4.9-34 is 
different than for previous kernels.  It looks like through kernels
version 2.4.7 the drivers were stored in 
but from 2.4.9 they are stored in /lib/modules/2.4.9-XXsmp/misc/,
is that right?  I haven't upgraded the OMSA packages, since I can't find any.
I did find the upgrade referencing the ECC issue, but that seems unrelated.
However, there are also two packeages regarding that upgrade, 
omsa4xxc-lnx-a00.tar and sa1xxc-lnx-a00.tar.  I'm assuming that they
are the same thing since they are the same size and refer to the same problem.

Also, Steve, you mentioned Server Administrator 1.1, how can
I get a hold of it?  I dug through Dell site and came up 
empty-handed.  After doing a search on Google though, I was led
back to Dell's site, where I found the documentation for it.
Any suggestions as to how to get it?

Again, thanks for the help.
