Troubleshooting Question

My RH8.0 linux box has been crashing lately. Is there some log file I can look at to see what the problem is? If there are more than one, where are they?

It was the entire computer in some regard. My linux box runs headless, and I just use it as a file server, DHCP server, and I check my email through it. That's about it. :/
