So I spent a few hours redoing the File server setup, switching out the mother board drives etc… Only to recall why I never used the dual 1ghz machine in the first place. When placing an IDE or SATA PCI card into the motherboard everything slows to a crawl. Its some issue with the motherboard and is stated on the TYAN site. So I wasted away a few hours of my life for nothing. I did however reinstall the File server with the old hardware and a copy of Ubuntu Server. The new install is much more optimized than the later which is the only plus from the experience. Damn you TYAN and your Dual p3 motherboard issues.
File server = Epic Fail
