If you wish to exclude the disks completely, you can try generating a
large file on a known-good host and running md5 on it, then reading it
via NFS on the suspect machine, piping through gzip and gunzip, and
right into md5, then comparing the numbers.

cat largefile | gzip | gunzip | md5

In this way, the file never even touches the disk, and that subsystem
can be ruled out entirely.

On a side note, does anybody know if those lossless codecs use the FPU?
