Description of problem:
This is the second time I have came to my server and it completely unresponsive.
 I just upgraded the the newest kernel yesterday 11/18 and this happened the
next day.  I am currently using kernel  2.4.18-18.8.0 but this also happened
with the previous kernel.  After rebooting the system the following is what I
found in /var/log/messages:

Nov 19 01:04:51 cheech kernel: mtrr: no MTRR for e0000000,2000000 found
Nov 19 01:06:50 cheech gconfd (kurt-23544): GConf server is not in use, shutting
down.
Nov 19 01:06:50 cheech gconfd (kurt-23544): Exiting

The next message was the beginning of the reboot.  The system was just idle at
the time and not doing much of anything.


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


How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  It just happens not really a reproducable problem.
2.
3.
	

Additional info:

Just running a stock Red Hat 8.0 install.  Nothing really fancy.

Update:  Problem happened again.  Again I checked the system and it was
completely unresponsive.  Couldn't ssh into it or anything.  The only other
additional thing I could add is that I am using the Nvidia drivers with a
Geforce 4 card.  Don't think that would cause but you never know.  Here is
contents of the /var/log/messages after I got back into the system.
