Weird --maybe bad RAM?

Could be. But you can test RAM with e.g. memtest86.

Or it could be a bad component (e.g. a capacitator) somewhere on the
motherboard or in the powersupply. Or a spike or drop in the external power.

I have swapped the HD back to the old box. I am up and running again. If it doesn't crash today, I can be certain the ol' grey mare needs to be taken out back and shot. Dual PIII on a Abit server board c. 2000.

I hear that the Abit boards have issues with components.

Anyone recommend a cheap (not necessarily the latest technology) mobo for my server? I am running a low load SoHo server here at the house.
