Hi James,

The above error message seems to indicate there might be a problem with the BIOS. Have you checked to see if it's the latest available?

Not yet.... Doing so now.....

Thank you,

Ok, it was a real PITA, but I got the BIOS updated. I somehow corrupted Server 2003, spent a couple of hours trying to fix that, then gave up. I installed XP Pro to create the ROM update diskette (no floppy drives except the machine I am working on). The new BIOS was created 7/13/99, so it isn't exactly new. I have started re-installing Suse 10, the first disk finished, computer rebooted, and froze at "Starting syslog services" again. I am currently finishing the install via failsafe mode, but it appears that I am going to be having the same problem.
