From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.8-26mdk i686)

Description of problem:
The system locked-up and was completely unresponsive to
the console.

Attemps to telnet in received only

Connected to <hostname>.
Escape character is '^]'.

Kernel is 2.4.18-10smp

I had to actually press the reset button to reboot it.

Is there a startup script or other procedure I can follow
to have the newly rebooted system save the previous kernel's

Alternatively, is there are keystroke sequence to generate a 
panic/crash dump so the "hung" kernel's state can be analyzed?

Any documentation on diagnosing a hung system like this would
be helpful.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
