Hi Harry,

>It is now dead again.  This has been going on for two days now.  You
>really need to take a serious look at this machine - it is sick.

SSEC has report problems with unidata2 after your first note.  Just
in case they were not letting you know the machine's status, I am
including their messages below.

  Unidata2 has crashed twice tonight.  The first time was around 6:30 PM. 
  When it came up it httpd wouldn't start.  I tried starting httpd 
  manually and when nothing happened I issued a reboot and watched the log 
  as it came up and saw the message that httpd was starting but when the 
  machine finally came up httpd still wasn't running.  I called Jerry 
  Robaidek and he got httpd going again.
  But then between 9:00 PM and 9:25 PM, Unidata2 crashed again.  This time 
  it came up to the "enter root password or control-d to continue" I 
  called Jerry again and while I was talking to him hit the control-d 
  combo and unidata2 came back up for now but Jerry is trying to get a 
  hold of the machine's sysadmin.
  Be well.

  Unidata2 crashed for a third time around 10:00 PM
  After the second crash, the raid failed to mount and ldm failed to 
  start.  Jerry's going to send email to the ldm list.

>Harry is correct ... unidata2.ssec.wisc.edu crashed this evening.
