Gerry,

>Don't know about syslogd, as I didn't stop it.

It was weird.  Also weird was /dev/md0 disappearing unexpectedly.
I remounted it and it worked, but I still saw lots of errors in
/var/log/messages.

I tried running 'fsck -p /dev/md0', but it failed in the middle telling
me to run fsck by hand.  I have been doing this for the past two
hours, and it is still going.  I will most likely have to go to bed before
it finishes, so I may have to start over again tomorrow.

No worries.

Man...

>If you'd run fsck -p, that'd help.  It's still spotty.

It is still running, but it is almost time for bed -- meeting first
thing tomorrow morning.

Later...
