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!

To share your profile:

[root at localhost olivares]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP
Mon Jan 14 21:37:30 EST 2008 i686 athlon i386
[root at localhost olivares]# rpm -qa kernel

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