So here is /var/log/* (whatever would fit on a floppy) from the box 
after another mystry error.  Anyone see what the problem is?


The above came from this script:

#! /bin/sh -x
# clp.sh
mkdir -p /media/floppy
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /media/floppy
cd /media/floppy
rm -rf logs
mkdir logs
cd logs
cp /var/log/messages .
cp /var/log/syslog .
# make sure these don't get wacked
chmod u-r *
# whatever else will fit.
cp -r /var/log/* .
ps auxw >ps.txt
lsof >lsof.txt
lsmod >lsmod.txt
umount /media/floppy
