Description of problem:
I've seen random system reboots with all RH 7.3 kernels, including the most
recent kernel-smp-2.4.18-18.7.x.  All RPMs are up to date on
the system, and there are no messages in /var/log/messages that
indicate what may have happened.  I'll be sending an email to my LUG
tomorrow, but would appreciate any help that y'all can give me in
looking at other log files or in setting up the system to provide
more verbose error messages for the next reboot.  The frequency
is several months between each reboot.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
The system randomly reboots itself.  It's only a matter of time.

can you provide lsmod output so that I can see what drivers are in use ?

The server rebooted itself yesterday, Jan 30 at 18:31 PST.
I'm working upgrading to the latest kernel, although it's
supposed to fix an ext3 data corruption problem, and not
random reboots.

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/
