Description of problem:
RH 8 is installed on an Compaq W6000 with 2 Processors 1,8 GHz and 1 Gig.

The installation works fine, and there are no Problems. 

But after a small time (between 5 minutes and an hour)the System hangs up. 
Nothing works. Only the power Down solves the Problem. 

Problem appears when doing big ftp transferts or with an X emulator (Reflection 
X) or directly connected to the machine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

We use the following driver : NVIDIA Quadro 4 (generic). This driver is the 
driver provided with the distribution.

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/
