I have a Compaq Deskpro EP here running as a mail, nis and nfs server. But
since I inserted a new disk 3 weeks ago it has crashed on me twice...
It used to run like a clock, and have never crashed before...

And so on until it crashes...

Could I have misconfigured the hardware in this machine in some way, or may the 
disk I bought for it be "to new"? Would uppgrading to 1.4.1 be an option?
