To answer your last question first, the jukebox is on a separate adaptec card in 
a PCI slot.

-----------------------------

Since this is a remote office, I can always have someone arrow down on the KVM 
grub menu, if necessary, if my kernel compile misses the first time. Not that I 
have ever had that happen to me before ;)

I also would like to understand the afa tools better and resolve the "set smart" 
commands. And since this host was fine for six months, I would have thought any 
kernel issues would have surfaced early in its deployment.

Thanks,

Vernon
