More fun followup
I spent 4 hours working on that frelling machine. I got the system reinstalled and everything looks good (no obvious sendmail errors) but now the ethernet link isn't working. There's lights on the switch and on the box but no matter how I try and config it I get "Destination unreachable" kind of errors. At first I thought it might be the on-board NIC so I disabled it in the BIOS and put a NIC card in. La-de-da-de-da and everything came up cool. Start the networking and what do I get? Same error. I need to get with my buddy and see if there's maybe a cable problem or config issue on his switch. I really hate when things don't work for no reason.
