05Dec01 -- Today I reinstalled RH 7.2 on the same hardware and this problem is
not reproducible.  The only difference has been to decrease the clock speed a
bit (a 1.4G Athlon but I am now running it at 1Ghz).  I guess this can be marked
down to hardware problems.  Sorry for the bogus report.

Thanks, Duane
