Server crashed twice on my FC2 / cpanel box and tech at the dc said this:
Other servers have been having this same problem with the recent Fedora packaged kernels. It's apparently a bug in some data-structure handling code. The only solution I've found so far is to boot to a 2.6.9 kernel instead of the Fedora 2.6.10 kernels. It's not a hardware problem, as we've seen several customer systems exhibit similar behavior when running Fedora's 2.6.10 kernel.
If a newer kernel fails then it would probalby be a problem with one of the kernel section sources. Find the creator and discuss the issue.
If going to 2.6.10* or greater requires and few other updates to get the system stable. I don't recall all but udev will be an issue. Best way around is upgrade to FC3. If you can build a dupilcate machine or duplicate the harddrive then upgrade to fc3 and beta test that setup and see if it works before trying others. Always have backups. No need for a fresh install, just do an upgrade from fc2 to fc3.

Changing default to equal 12 means if you reboot then that is your default kernal that is used if you do not touch the system. Another thought here you can try since since it appears you have multiple processor system is boot with one of the standard non smp kernels. The OS will only use one processor then. See if that fixes the problem.
Or you can remove one of the processors and see if the system is stable. Then ou can boot with a standard not smp kernel. That would make no difference.
