If I read the mail thread right (the second time)
you witness about 6 crashes per day which would
give an average uptime of 3-6 hours ...
If this is true, your machine would be the ideal
candidate to track down this bug ...
1) please make sure that ksymoops is installed
2) attach a serial line to your machine and capture
the kernel oops and "decode" them with ksymoops
3) please, please check the kernel patch sets
on my homepage (2.4.20 and 2.4.21 ..)
try to do some network/cpu load monitoring via
network syslog or something similar ...

It would be great to attach a kernel debugger
via the serial line to do some in crash search ...
PS: if you have any questions, contact me ...
