[K12OSN] Help diagnosing a kernal panic



Three times in the last three weeks our main Samba server has tripped over giving the information below in /var/log/messages

Would you say that it's the smbd process on line 15 that's causing the system to trip over ??

The system has been running fine for almost 3 years now so I'm not sure why it has suddenly started doing this, I've not installed any new software or run any updates since it was installed, I know this is bad but it's a Fedora Core 3 box and with the closure of the fedora legecy project it's not that simple to do updates.

This is our main Samba server so I'm a little concerned about just trying things as the system also runs our OpenLDAP server so is the "heart of the machine"

Any pointers would be gratefully be received.
