The complete screen of the error is below, there is one error in the 
second block of the STACK info.  Had to hand write it and did not notice 
until I typed it out.

<0> Kernel Panic: Aiee, Killing Interupt Handler
	In Interupt Handler - Not Syncing

We disabled the integrated audio in bios.  Other than that is is a stock.  
The PC crashes about once a day with this error.  Let me know if there is 
anything else that is needed, as this is my first post.  Also no useful 
log data.  Just happily chugging along and the syslog restarting after a 
manual reset.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Sit and wait and wait and wait.  The system reproduces this bug about 
1 time a day.  We have seen a similar error on another Dell PC of this 
type.  That system was reconfigured and the error was not recorded.  Oh 
and put netcfg back the thing that replaced it sucks.

Additional info:

I will be checking Dell support for bios updates and will install the 
2.4.7 rawhide kernel if this error persists.  We have 4 dual processor AMD 
Athlon MP servers which have rosewell install and not a peep from any of 
them so this appears to be system specific.
