Have this small branch server, only one in that branch: 

Dell PE 2400 with 3 RAID5 10K rpm drives.

Performance Monitor shows disk activity jumping up to 100% and staying
there for 10mins or more at a time; this happens very often (only 2-3
minutes "rests"). Processor is below 25% most of the time. This happens
even when there's no clients connected!

Server is running Win2K SP3 AD DC, Exch2k SP3, ISA2K SP1, & Norton AV
7.6, but serves only 5 WinXP Pro clients.

Have tried & tried and can't figure out what's going on -- happens even
when I stop ISA & Exchange.

What should I be looking at?
