What is the 'shredder' referred to in the summary?

We've done hundreds of installs on various hardware platforms w/o seeing this
issue to my knowledge.  It would be useful to know what hardware you are working

Comment 2 Dean Oliver 2002-06-04 15:09:23 UTC
Shredder is a blade server , 6 blades, Power Edge 1655MC.
Only 1 blade currently installed, although this has been seen on other boxes with more 
than 1 blade. 
Blade 1 - x01 bios, x04 fw, 36 gig hard drive w/ momb, 128 MB ram, 8mg video with 
internal kvt video switch.
