[rescue] U5 PCI riser

After we took a power hit yesterday, I had considerable trouble getting 
my firewall U5 back up.  It would only boot on every second to third 
power-on attempt, I had to replace one of the NICs, swap out the PCI 
riser from another machine that's not using its PCI slots, and still had 
to move the other NIC to a different PCI slot.

Does the U5's PCI riser have a rep for being troublesome in this fashion?

           It's not the years, it's the mileage.
