Well as a last resort, we've taken the D-Link 100-Base-TX card out and
replaced it with a 3com 100-Base-TX card and it's early days but the server
seems to be taking everything we throw at it at the moment. Teaches us to
buy cheap :-(

I'm pleased to be able to use VNC in anger now and also to remove the blame
from it.

Thanks for everyone's advice.
