7.2 gave you timeout's on your hard drive?

If that is true check your configuration (physical first) make sure ytou have master/slave setup properly.

Also, try a different drive, I had a drive that started giving timeouts - it had to be replaced. Im not sure 7.2 would install and 7.3 wont though...

Quiet brain, or I'll stab you with a Q-tip.
