"May not help, but..."  When I was running Fedora 7 three months ago I had
the same issue but intermittent, along with random lockups after a couple of
hours of idling. I think it was because I was using XFS, though. I found out
later it doesn't play nice with the Fedora kernel.
I solved it by going to Ubuntu and JFS for the frontend--no probs now.
