We bought a batch of 4 identical Dell Optiplex 745 machines.  Three are running 
Linux and one Windows.  Only one has this problem.

I'm not sure how to look for this.

I realized something since yesterday.  This machine's unique feature is that I
compiled a new kernel to add the Reiser file system.  I downloaded the
source RPM for the exact version that came with the distro, and the only
thing I changed was to enable ReiserFS.
