SUMMARY: Server rebooting---Cause unknown

The consensus is to check the core dumps.  I had to delete it because the
system has "var" as part of the root file system, which was 100% full after
the system rebooted. So, I dont have an answer just yet.  Im setting
auto-boot? false, so if it crashes again I can boot to single user and copy
the core file to tape.  Also exploring options to grow the root file system
(One person noticed that I have 2.5GB for swap space, and he said Sol 2.6
only utilizes up to 2gb of /tmp.  I have not verified that yet, but if it is
correct, I may yank that .5gb of space, and add it to root;)

Thanks to all those who reponded!

NOTE: a few expressed concerns over the known CPU problems in the 400mhz
versions.  (Sarcasm ON)I guess I should have mentioned that the cpu's are
BLAZING away @ 168mhzm :)
