Server Suddenly Started Hunging up

Here is where I am now. I have removed the RAID5 array and now I have a
single SATA 500GB drive. Did a fresh install (8.04 64 bit) and everything
went fine. Only 3 clients boot up. The rest get no DHCP or no proxyDHCP
offered. Trying to ssh to the server from remote takes forever and then the
connection breaks. Trying to ssh from the console does takes forever again
but it logs in. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? These clients
and this server have been running for the past 6 months without a hich. I
run fsck on both disks and everything is fine.
