I would shut off any unused devices in the system.  (ie onboard SCSI, com
and nic ports) See if the issue clears up.  Also since normally NMI errors
are coming from a piece of hardware somewhere I would to pull the ESM log
off the system board and see if you are getting excessice ECC errors or PCI
errors.  If you already have the log can you attach the text from it.

I've run memtest86 already.  It comes up clean.  In the process of 
tracking this problem down the following parts have been replaced: 
motherboard, ram, ram riser board, all 4 CPUs, and I've even tried 
different harddrives on the machine.
