finally figured out hard drive issue

So, I recently put a separate drive controller in my primary workstation. This seems to have resolved the issue where too much drive activity would make the machine crash. So, I guess I don’t need to buy a new machine after all. I still may, but it’s nice that I don’t have to…

Perhaps it’s time to move the 3Ware RAID controller into this machine, then, since this machine actually has 64-bit PCI slots and I feel bad having the back end of the controller hanging out of a 32-bit slot in the other machine…
