Oops: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address


My fedora core 2 system crashed...again. This time it's the "yum" process.
See my previous thread (not answered).
/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=260410

My best guess it that the memory module is broken or something.

Below is the last entry in the syslog.
The server is a dedicated mysql database server with not too much load.
Using kernel: 2.6.8-1.521smp. What does this error mean, how do i "fix" it?
I've also had kernel panics before with /etc/cron.daily/prelink so this machine "feels" unstable.

Does anyone have any ideas?
