    And I've used it's 603 cousins as well without issue. I was thinking
    after I sent the message APPro may be using uncertified memory, however,
    I don't want to have to pull it back out of the rack to find out.
    (Personally, I'd rather build them myself than buy them pre-assembled.)

    It works fine until a large volume of traffic is sent at it on the gig
    ports. It works sometimes, and locks up other times. On rare occasions,
    the kernel stops receiving traffic -- the lights are blinking and the chip
    counters are still going up, but no traffic is showing up. (ethtool -r
    gets us back going.)

    It's currently been running for 16 hours. I made a few changes to BIOS
    settings (nothing that should matter.) One thing I've noticed, even though
    Tyan only has ONE BIOS published for the board, both of the boards here
    have different versions (between themselves and what tyan is pushing.)

    I'm preparing to slam it with 87Mbps of traffic (as fast as I can transmit
    without error) and see how long it lasts.


    PS: There's a Del 2650 right below it. There are reports of problems with
    the e1000's in that thing. It's the same chipset as I recall.
