Timothy,

I sent the other message, then the computer froze
again.  The message was:

from syslogd at localhost at Feb 19 07:09:52
journal commit I/O error

I thought for a moment that all was well.  Here is
smolt profile for the machine:

Errata Found!

[root at localhost olivares]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.23.14-107.fc8 #1 SMP
Mon Jan 14 21:37:30 EST 2008 i686 athlon i386
GNU/Linux
[root at localhost olivares]# rpm -qa kernel
kernel-2.6.23.9-85.fc8
kernel-2.6.23.1-49.fc8
kernel-2.6.23.15-137.fc8
kernel-2.6.23.14-107.fc8

so that kernel is history again :(.  Till a newer and
better kernel comes out or I get it from Dave's
repository :) maybe a 2.6.24.2 based kernel.  

Regards,

Antonio
