I have had hard drives go with basically the same behavior because they didn't have any air movement around them. Make sure those things are properly ventilated. I doubt VERY seriously that this is a FreeBSD problem. I've been using FreeBSD on all my own machines for roughly 6 years now, and have never seen anything go wrong that wasn't related to bad hardware. FreeBSD is also used in several very busy places such as yahoo.com and sony japan's websites, and I doubt either of those companies would put up with what you're seeing.
Basically to sum it up, your hardware is broken and you can be almost totally sure it's not FreeBSD's fault. (I'd suspect overheating damaging ur hd's or other components) Ken _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
