Just a quick clarification:
In my previous posting, I mentioned that I got paged with a warning
message.  The message in fact was "Serious Storage problem may Exist." 
By the time I dialed in, we were at 98%.  My system threshold should be
set at the default of 90% since I have not changed it.  Since we have 60
Gig, I think 6Gb is a safe comfort zone.
