 You might be onto something - though my gut feel is that the
 reboot would have identified this, as the fsck on boot would
 have stalled.  I'll get my sister to do a 'mount' and see if any
 volumes are RO.

 The network cable is okay, as ping works fine.  I did think
 that changing the cable might be a cautious move, and I've
 got a stash of spare cat5's near the server.
