Thanks for the input Arthur.

The BIOS is current.

I'll check the LSI firmware date on that computer on Monday.

I have an identical machine at home right now, and I've spent many hours
saving all the data from it.  I was about to try an upgrade over it to see
if I can repeat it here.   As a result of your suggestion, I found the LSI
firmware can be upgraded on the machine at home.  Because these computers
have no floppy disk drive, I'll have to make a bootable windows CD to do it,

I'll report back on Monday.
