Well, as you can see we're back online, with no problems at all! The easiest hardware transfer I think this system has ever seen :) Hopefully nothing will show up tonight, or tomorrow, or for the next year or more (touch wood *tok*tok*). The only issue encoutered was a kernel panic encountered when the kernel was recompiled (I love the 2 minute compile time btw) with high memory support. Oh well, will figure that out sometime later, for now I'm just going to cross my fingers and hope things stay up and well over night :)
As always huge kudos to Fred and Ken for their help.
