Based on everything you've said, and some other discussions I've
had, I believe this is the case.  I don't remember if I mentioned
this, but the CPU is an aging Duron 750.

I don't have any extra CPUs laying around right now, but hopefully
in the not-too-distant future I will.  Either way, I definately
have some more things to look into.

Anyway, thank you very much for your very detailed and thorough
response!  That was way more information than I expected :)  I
really appreciate it.

Thanks again,
