awesome, i will give that a shot.

as far as the hardware, i moved this to a temporary piece of gear. it is a brand new in the box 1950. it has error checking ram and has done some significant workload since i started testing/preparing for this migration. i realize that new hardware could still be faulty, it just seems unlikely.

thanks for the answer on the sourcing. hopefully installworld will just complete and i can move on.

if not, im sure you guys will hear from me as i rebuild into a 6.2 or 6.3 VM on the ESX server.
