 	No NFS I. All local.

 	Good thought - I use an ATA 133 drive for the / and /boot partitions, 
with /var, /home, /tmp on an Ultra-160 SCSI drive. I've got the swap partition 
on another Ultra-160 SCSI drive, but with 4GB of RAM and an SMP kernel (so 
highmem is enabled) no swapping of any size occurs.
 	 I'm running smartmontools and between that and syslog no errors are 
popping up. The /var, /home, /tmp drive has 191 days on it, so I'm thinking 
everything is okay there.
