Well... no. I can't really assume anything at this point. 
The computer itself isn't *that* old (3 to 4 years), so 
having the original hard drive crash was a bit of a surprise.

The strange part is it varies so wildly. I'll get anywhere 
from two hours to 5 days of uptime before either icecast or 
the system crashes - all with the same error.

I did install the old hard drive in a new box, but it 
wouldn't even take a reinstall. The RAM is a good place 
start, but at this point, I may just save myself the trouble 
and purchase a new box.

In any case, the feedback was very helpful. Thanks folks.
