I sent this last night but didn't put summary in the subject line.
Anyway, here's the details as I know them now.

Hi again,

This was the email that set me to thinking. In the recommeded patches
there's a sendmail patch. I, unfortunately, had backed out almost all
of the
patches by the time I got this. However, with all the patches gone, the

machine booted right up. I guess I'll set off to install them one by
one -
just to be sure.

Thank you so much for all of your help - it was appreciated.

Thanks to:

Jim Harmon <jim@telecnnct.com>
Robert Bays <robert@ironlight.com>

Finally ... I get to go home.

(I hope I didn't forget anyone)

There were several thoughts that it was an NFS problem, many people
suggested adding echos to the rc2.d scripts that start up after print
services and a few did recommend backing out the patches. I did take
the cowards way out, I backed out every patch and it booted just fine.
I will install them one by one to see wherin the problem lies.

Thanks again, this list is great!
