That's exactly the same thing that happened on the 386 I was planning to
use as a nat gateway for the home net. It's what you might call the rock-
bottom low end: 20mhz 386dx, 8mb ram, 400 mb disk. I was beginning to 
wonder if if the static discharges from the carpet had killed it after all,
since this box had been running 2.5 (s-l-o-w-l-y, but running).

But what you're describing duplicates my experience exactly.

So is there a workaround I could apply?
