Core 2 OS crashes and resets to login screen at random

Description of problem: When running Fedora Core 2 (the stable
release) the system crashes and resets to the login screen
spontaneously. This doesn not seem to be tied to the running of any
particular application or application. Sometimes it happens when the
computer is just sitting idle. I am sure it is not a hardware problem
because this does not happen on the Windows side.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedore Core 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. No steps. It just happens randomly.
This sounds like the X server is crashing.
Please attach your /var/log/messages (including everything from boot
time onward), the X server log and config file, and any details that
might help to diagnose the problem and determine wether it is the
X server, video driver, kernel, or something else.
Please attach uncompressed individual files using the link below,
and we'll investigate.
Thanks in advance.
*** This is an automated comment update ***
The X11 implementation included with Fedora Core 2 and 3, is "X.Org X11"
provided by the X.Org project located at "http://www.x.org". XFree86 is no
longer included in Fedora Core. To ensure faster review and investigation
of X related Fedora Core bug reports, please be sure to file the bug against
the correct component of "xorg-x11" in the future. Thanks in advance.
Reassigning several bugs from XFree86 component to proper xorg-x11
