For #1 - are you seeing any overheating at all with the system. Have you
run a memory tester like memtest86? Are there any scheduled tasks that
are running at this time that may correlate to the lockup?
For #2, check out ntpd, which is a daemon version of ntpdate... I'm not
sure of the specifics on setting it up on Knoppmyth, however.
