SubjectRe: Reiserfs, 3 Raid1 arrays, 2.4.1 machine locks up
As other posts have pointed out, if you have BAD HDMA cables, you will 
experience problems. One thing I would suggest is that you
add kernel.* /dev/console to your /etc/syslog.conf so that you see
any errors resulting from the kernel code. Also I would suggest that you
open another virtual terminal and leave tail -f /var/log/messages and keep
an eye on it when the system could possibly crash. This should help you
out a little bit.
