Did you figure out what was giving you those errors? I haven't had time to play around with it but if you don't have those problems anymore I'd be willing to put my E6750 back online for the Team
Two things have fixed all my issues, one is that I did clean re-installs and then I got fresh copies of ubuntu 1.5(I have been using the same one and just carrying it over).
I also switched to vmplayer over vmserver, I have no had a core shut down since switching to player. Beyond that I have switched all the rigs around so things are fresh all over.
BTW: Melanie(snoopy) said she would post later tonight or tomorrow and pm you as well duke as to her decision. She wanted me to ask if you would rejoin then mega?
