I would like to thank everyone for assistance with my intermittent system
lockup. I believe I've finally traced the problem down to a faulty hard
drive. It would appear that the new Western Digital drive that I
installed had a few bad sectors. I tested the drive with WD's own diag
tool and it recommend an RMA of the drive. While waiting for the advanced
RMA, I decided to try stabilizing the drive as much as possible through
the use of fsck and a non-destructive scanning of all the drive
partitions. That appears to have done the trick.
The system has now been stable (even with prolific use of Mozilla) now for
a little over a week. I just got the new drive and moved all data from
the old drive with no problem. The system is still behaving properly.
Once again, thanks to everyone.
