CPU/RAM/Motherboard or variables of the 3 are having hardware issues. Clock setting, heat, just fried, take your pick. google for memtest86 and do a ramtest floppy. Let it run for a day. You should be able to narrow it down then, assuming if your kernel was properly installed in the first place.
Can you give us some more specifics? What exactly do you mean by 'put my system in a new box'? You bought a new case and just threw your old hardware into it? Are you running on a New Mobo and you just put the old drive in it?
just took the hard drive out of a perfectly stable 24/7 configuration, and put it into a new box, with different mobo, mem, pci cards etc...
the box the hard drive was moved into was relatively stable (was running windows, so no way to know which problems were hardware, which were OS). For a windows machine, the whole thing was quite stable.
other symptoms (apart from the hangs) include much slower responses from the email server.
yes actually many people do this all the time. why do you think there are so many swappable racks for hard drives. all you need is to reconfigure the drivers for the new hardware and you're up and running.
Not necessarily.... the 2 systems would have to be very similar for this to work at all. Different system, especially different architectures will cause some serious problems, like the ones that you are having. Swappable racks are so you can REPLACE a damaged drive, NOT so you can just switch out hard drives at random between unlike machines.
