Thanks for the advice - nc started without issue. However a full rebuild or O/S identified the issue. Installed SlimServer 1st & it started without issue. Added drivers and found that the server hang occoured after by the installation of Realtek AC97 drivers for the on board soundcard ALC658(Motherboard is a Giga GA-8KNXP - Intel 875P chipset.). Removing this driver (v4.5) & associated s/w resolved the issue

I downloaded the latest driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dlac97-2.aspx?lineid=5&famid=12&series=8&Software=True (v4.94) and installed just them not the additional auto detetc software and it's working fine.

Again thanks for the help and hope the info above is of some use to somebody, sometime

Now to get started...
