This process took a couple of days to figure out.  I had to take the
server down during our maintenance window and attach a laptop as our
terminal.  Originally the server had a SUN monitor attached but it
would lock up as well when the server would lock up.  After attaching
the laptop, when the server went down again it provided me with enough
information to troubleshoot it.  The problem turned out to be a CPU having
ecache problems.  Once I replaced it, things were fine.  Thanks again to
all who helped.  Oh, and one last thing, as far as I could find
there is no VTS for Solaris 2.5.1.
