1) lspci output would be very useful to get a general idea of the hardware
2) is this anything regular ? (eg every day around the same time)

The time does not seem to be regular.  What is consistant is that it happens in 
less than 24 hours but not at the same time of day or hour each time.

Could you please try the 2.4.3-12 errata kernel that was released last friday ?
This updated kernel has countless bugfixes so it's worth trying.
