[clug] [PMX:#] Problem server

Hey, all y'all

I have a small RH9 server (converted desktop) which I'm running a few important things on - CVS, Nagios, Bugzilla.  Recently, it's started acting a little whacko.  It stops responding for no apparent reason, on no fixed schedule.  Today it's needed to be kicked in the guts at frequencies as short as a couple of minutes and as long as several hours.  There's no CPU or memory load, the / and /boot partitions are less than 10 per cent full respectively.

Our main Nagios server, which monitors this box, initially reports the HTTP server as non-responsive and then PING host checks fail.  I strongly suspect it's a hardware issue, but am not sure where to start poking.  The boot and messages logs don't reveal anything I can spot.

Any recommendations?
